So Proud!


Little J is just so stinkin' cute, and he is making G and I so proud! He's really becoming a little stunt boy now! For the last few nights, he's been testing the waters at pulling himself up in his crib. He has been so motivated to get himself up! When he was born, my parents bought him a music box, that plays a little light show and tells a story and sings songs. It's called the Dreamscapes Soother by Leap Frog. He's always loved this thing, but since we came back from Switzerland and got the voice activated Winnie The Pooh Moonlight Dreamshow , we've been using it. Well, in the last couple of days, he's decided that he wants both of them playing at the same time. So, now we've been determined to climb up to it. It's not just enough though to be able to reach up and turn it on.
The goal now is to actually get to it and look directly at the light screen. Usually, this kid is asleep by 9:30, but lately, he's been staying up till about 10 trying and trying to get to that standing position. At 19 months, most parents are complaining about chasing after their little one, or they are beaming with pride that their little one is learing to be potty trained or even speaking in sentences. Sometimes it's hard when your little one is behind, but I can't help but beam with joy and jump up and down as I see little J trying all these things. He as such amazing tenacity and such strong motivation to do anything and everything. Everyday I see just how big the little steps he takes are. I also know, that this amazing little boy is going to take us on one heck of a journey!

Way to go little J!!! You keep at it! I know just what you mean Laurie, it IS amazing to see how hard these little guys have to work to do what typical kids can't seem to help but do. It takes a lot of determination, and little J sure seems to have it! :-) It brings such a big smile to my face to see these picutes. I am glad to hear PT went well too!
