Dmitri and Dante play tug-a-war: their favorite game
Neither of them are letting go without a fight
Every month I think, wow, Dmitri has grown so much and changed immensely. I apologize for the redundancy, but I guess that's what having a child is like..always morphing, growing, evolving.
This month has been a huge change for us all, because Dmitri is completely mobile. It's made us realize how our apartment is a baby trap that could cause an accident at any time. Yikes. And this child lives for danger. He doesn't want to play with his toys. No, he'd much prefer the electrical cords. The space heater is one of his favorites. That mom that they joke about putting a toaster in her child's bath, the kid probably just really liked playing with cords and the mom was a little out of it from sleep deprivation.
One night at 3:30 AM he crawled across the bed to David's side, climbed on the pillow, and started playing with David's hair (one of his favorite things to do). It was pretty cute.
So here are a few of the things Dmitri is up to, in to, and about:
-Crawling everywhere (he's pretty fast now.)
-Pulling himself to standing while holding on to something
-Transitioning from sitting to crawling to standing (while holding something) and vice versa
-He tries to stand up and breastfeed at the same time (inconvenient)
-He follows after me if I leave the room, while squawking
-He loves the chicken dance
-He has experimented with food a little more. He's eaten pieces of toast, oranges, lemons, apples, avocado, cantaloupe, pickles, and he'll eat hot cereal (only if I let him help hold the spoon!)
-He loves his stuffed bunny (it was supposed to be his Easter present, but Daddy gave it to him early)
-He has mastered drinking from his sippy cup
We love every minute of having him in our lives. Though, I have to admit, I'm ready for nights that involve less sleep interruption!
