Dallin's learning


I have been working with Dallin this last month on different things. It's been fun seeing things click and how he's becoming our little boy. First, I have been showing him how to get on his tummy and go feet first off our bed. He has been doing that now all by himself. That scared me the first time. I wasn't sure what he was doing. He will also get off our couch that same way too. He also likes to pick up each leg as I hold his shorts in front of him to get dressed. That has taken awhile. At first, he could barely pick up one leg- darn balance thing. But now, he knows to lift one leg up at a time. Our favorite thing now started while I would read to him he would sit in my lap. Now he always likes to sit in my lap whether I'm ready or not. One day I was cleaning up a spot on the floor and I look up and there's a cute tushie backing up in front of me. He's just so cute! We are also so proud of finally holding up his arms for his sippy cup. He figured that out a couple of weeks ago. He would hold his cup but didn't understand to lift his arms. That took a long time but he's gotten it. I could keep going but just a few things that make me a proud Mamma!!
In the picture above, Dallin has found our screen door. It amazes me how much fun he has closing and opening our door.
