Will is 9 months old! He loves watching the big kids play and thinks he is one of them. He is so eager to touch and feel and play. He gets so excited when we take him to our local bookstore and he plays with the train set. That table filled with trains and their tracks is showing its age and with wear and fading paint and is a dirty germ pool but Will loves it so. It is his “precious”.
I have come a long with with my mild case of germaphobia. Will’s and my life is better for it. He has fun! And I am more relaxed. Oh yah, and dad is relieved. I did however wash his hands when we got home :}
Will has he two bottom teeth, loves to pull himself to stand, claps, grooves to music and much much more. I love this little guy. He has now been out of the womb longer than he was in.
Will is now grabbing toys hanging down from his jungle gym in each hand.
Just last week he was grabbing one with one hand then reaching over and grabbing with his other hand as well. Today I saw him going to town with both arms swinging and batting at the toys that hang down on either side of him. He was also pausing to grab them one in each hand. He is developing into a big little boy!
It’s funny to say things such as these because, after all, don’t all humans do theses things? Well, each new life seems like a brand new experience… especially for me, being a new mom.
I love my little man!
Now, its off to bed with me. Its late and Will has a good head start on the sleep.
I saw these cool building pieces called Magna-Tiles on amazon.com and I WANT THEM for Will. It is for ages 3 and up. We have 2 years and six months to go. Sigh. They got great reviews.
Will is getting to the point that he needs toys. I want to buy him one today… Billy wants me to make one out of the organic material we have. I need to get me sewing machine fixed but it costs $92 just for the tune up! And I need a tune up on my serger too. I need to learn how to do this myself, or I need to make some good cash. I tried to find a “how-to” on google but with no luck. Hmm, I will keep searching. Sewing is another way that this mom wants to play.
Wishing you a playful day!
ps. I typed this one-handed while rocking Will on my lap holding toys for him to play with.
