When crawling, J will periodically stop for a rest. He'll lay his head down on the floor. We are expected to put our head down next to his. Then he laughs.
Not that J crawls a great deal these days. He can take about 8 steps at a time now. He's enjoying his newfound skill. Soon, there will be no stopping him. But in our living room, as soon as he heads for the stairs, he invariably trips over the front paw of his big stuffed lion and down he goes. Then he's easier to catch, as he crawls toward the stairs.
We have a baby gate now. I think we'll need to pick up a second one, though, to keep J out of the kitchen area. He does dearly love to explore.
J now has 8 teeth. I went to brush them this morning, and was dismayed to discover that the cats had stolen J's toothbrush some time during the night. Apparently, it makes a lovely cat toy. We will pick up a new toothbrush for J today, and will make sure it is locked up tight.
J has a new toy. It's a MegaBlocks Robot that we picked up for $3.50 from Once Upon a Child. It's cool! It lights up. And when you push down on it, it winds up and then rolls across the floor really fast. He loves it. According to J, the best feature is that the arms come off and the hand parts can easily be put into his mouth for easy arm carrying.
J has developed a sign for "milk". He smacks his lips together repeatedly, and that means he wants his milk now. It's really cute!
In other news, my garden is growing nicely. I only lost a couple of plants through the winter. They will be easily replaced, so not a big deal. Sadly, my big clump of delphiniums has been overtaken by worms for the second year in a row. Last year, I got to it early and managed to kill them. But this year, they seem to have won. We'll rip the plant out and replace it with a non-infested plant. If we get a chance to go the greenhouse today, we will. I don't know though. H is still not feeling very well, and I've got studying to do. Five more sections in Module 10, plus 2 computer illustrations to work through, and then I can start studying for the dreaded exam on June 8. Eek! That's coming up way too quick.
On a positive note, J is feeling a bit better now, though he's still not quite himself just yet. But he's eating again. Not much, but every little bit helps. It's all good. Hopefully, he'll be all back to normal very soon. And hopefully, I can continue to fight off this nasty bug that's overtaken my family.
That's about it for us. I hope everyone has a lovely day!
