J had a rough night. He woke up before 5 a.m. and would not go back to sleep. We tried everything we could think of, but finally I just left the room with J so that H could still try and get some sleep.
H didn't have to work until later this morning, so we traded off once he was up. H took J out of the room, and I got a bit more sleep. I hope I will be able to get some more studying done today. I really, really have to.
Once H and I were both up and around, I was holding J, laying him across my lap, and just getting ready to feed him. H grabbed Jazzy-cat and held her above J, saying "Cat". J reached up and grabbed Jazz's paw. It was so cute! At least until he seemed to be trying to pull on the paw. We made him release it.
On that note, J's grip is improving steadily. He can remove a pair of glasses from a person's face now and just hold them for quite some time. I don't know how long he can continue to hold them, as I am blind without them and have to make him return them quickly.
I am now trying to tucker J out for naptime so that I can get some studying done. I can't study while he's awake, even if he's happy. He's a bundle of energy and must be watched. He is currently in his jolly jumper, and he loves it. He has bounced away, spun around, and even swung back and forth. Mostly though, he is just taste-testing the strap at the moment. He appears to be done bouncing for the time being. Perhaps he is nap-ready?
We shall see.
