This week has been a busy week for garrett and me. We are preparing our students for the state standardized test. It's happening next week and many students are super stressed out because of how important it is. We just pray and believe that our students will do well. It has been an amazing year.
So this week, Gideon has been learning to pull himself up and stand. He also practices downward dog. He would push on a toy, a book, a lap or the ground to stand on his feet. He is also really good at the b-boy pose. We have not caught it on camera, but he would be in downward dog and he would reach out with one hand. We also need to lower the crib once again. We thought we had time in between his sitting up and crawling phase. It was not a phase; it was a week. He may be walking a lot sooner than we would like.
Gideon has been working on picking up food with his finger and thumb. He has not mastered it yet, but he is trying his best. We found out that he likes to do it more when he is not hungry. The need to eat does not increase his motivation but increases his level of frustration.
We received a hand-me-down train table that has two drawers. Thanks Yoon and Vinny! Mr. Darcy was able to bring it to the house. Now we have to put it together and put foam bumpers for Gideon to pull himself up.
Here was the funny picture of the week. Now that Gideon has short hair, he does not have knots but now bedhead. This picture was taken after a nap. =)
Video of him standing while holding the couch. Sorry the video is landscape instead of portrait. Just turn your head or turn your monitor. Enjoy!
