Look at my baby! Ugh, he’s so big- it’s so crazy! I took him to the park on Saturday. It was so nice out so I figured why not?! He really loves being on the swing so that’s where we spend 95% of our time when we go to a park, lol. I let him crawl through the tunnels or climb the stairs so he can get a little exercise in, too.
We also went to the library last week or maybe two weeks ago? He actually likes it when I read to him. He knows he has to sit next to me, and he always snuggles into my arms- so cute. He likes to help me turn the pages so I always let him do so. He really enjoys the sensory books, like the ones he can touch. He gets so intrigued by them. For a while his favorite book was ‘Ball’, I don’t remember the author unfortunately. He would laugh each time I read it.
I also gave him a haircut. It was definitely harder to get him to stay still this time, but we did it. He really looks a lot like his dad, it’s crazy. Each time he felt me cutting or knew I was going to do something to his hair, he would move. So of course I have to distract him with his favorite show and some snacks, and that did the trick for the most part.
One week in his gym class they had us put the babies in a hand stand, and that’s all Gio wanted to keep doing lol. I wish I could have taken a picture, but obviously I can’t do that while holding him. He would put his head down on his own and try to lift his body, it was so funny but it made me so happy to see how quick he is to catch onto things. He always cooperates in his class and does well for the most part. He balances well, lets the teachers do backrolls with him, he hangs onto the bars so tight and holds on his own for like 3 seconds, so I’m definitely happy I put him in this class! It’s been very worth it. Oh, and he loves the puppet shows now at the end! He sits so still and just watches, before… not so much, lol.
