This improvement in crawling abilities has translated into some trouble at nap time. He can now sit up on his own and I often find him on his knees in his crib hanging on to the side for dear life- not quite sure how to get back down and definately no where near sleeping. Yesterday, he was quiet so I thought he had fallen asleep. Suddenly the monitor started beeping at me that it's signal had been lost and so I went up stairs to see what had happened. This is what I found;
Yep, doesn't he look like a good little boy ready to take his nap? No? More like he's really proud of his little accomplishment right? He's trouble, I can tell.
His next accomplishment was finally figureing out how to stand up on his own. He's still not very stable and is at risk for tumbling at any moment (we learned that the hard way). This is what finally motivated him to get to his feet.
We had just pulled out our Christmas decor and this is a nativity set that Grandma Gundersen gave us several years ago. I think it's becoming one of his favorite toys.
Finally, winter is in full force here in wisconsin. I've gotten into the habit of shoveling snow every morning when Zack first lays down for his nap. Yuk! Boy what I wouldn't have given for a snow blower today- my goodness! We got a good amount. Actually, It was pretty light and fluffy though so it was easy to shovel. I wish it would always be so fluffy. I'm actually really excited for the snow. It's so beautiful. This is the tree just outside our back door.
