Timothy is getting more aware, more interactive, more understanding. It blows me away. How that unresponsive tiny baby that could spend his whole days staring at his hands turned into this Timothy?
Today I was eating cereal and he crawled and pointed at the bowl! That was the first time he clearly indicated he wanted something.
Yesterday hubby came home and they sat together in front of TV, watching baby Einstein, for a short little while. Watching Timothy cuddle with his dad almost made me cry. He’s not just sitting or lying in his lap. He actually is cuddling, sharing the experience of watching TV together.
And today Timothy was crawling – properly crawling. On all fours. No more dragging his body with his sticky palms.
And how well he can stand! Yesterday he pushed his musical table to where I was sitting and practiced free-standing for 10 minutes, releasing his hands, basking in my praise.
We spend time passing objects back and forth. Timothy gives mommy a ball? Why thank you Timothy! Here, take the ball! Oh, you are giving it back to me? Good job sharing!
Again, he smiles proudly.
And I smile proudly.
He’s getting so big…
