Our baby has now become a full-grown toddler. He has not crawled once this week. He is only walking and without asking for help. He wants to do it on his own. Does that sound like one of his parents? =) Also, Gideon is learning about the feelings of frustration. When something doesn't go right, he goes into a "hulk"-like rage. Hmm... Garrett and I will have to read up on how to support his emotional growth. More on that in a future post.
Gideon has mastered the high squeak greeting. When he sees someone that he recognizes, he squeals. I think this is a little bit of me and a little bit of cousin Norah. It is quite adorable. We haven't caught it on video just yet, but his shoulders go up in a shrug and his face scrunches up.
Last Saturday, we went to Aaron's first birthday at MyGym. It was an indoor play area with everything a kid would want to play with: trampoline, swings, ball pit, slide, balance beam, and climbing areas. Gideon was overwhelmed because there were many children and I woke up him from his afternoon nap. He did well considering all the stimulation and noise.
