February 20, 2007
Here is Nicholas, holding my sneaker. It's only size 7.5 but it looks huge next to him! He really likes shoe strings or anything soft to hold while he is sucking his thumb. He didn't do this for very long though. I'm sure the shoe was a bit heavy for him.
Do you like the socks and sandals:)? This is my solution to cold feet on our wood floors. They slip and fall too easily with just socks, even with the little grippers on the bottom. Their feet get too hot in their winter shoes and their summer sneakers don't fit yet. I may have to buy a smaller pair of sneakers for Ben. When I got the sandals, I realized that his feet are quite a bit smaller than Nick's.
Here is Ben, feeding himself a cracker. This was a big step for us. He is still not able to use his pincer grasp very well, although he does better with his left hand than his right, or so it seems. He is making an effort to feed himself at times though and we are happy to see this.
One of my favorite pics of Ben, learning to walk. He is really doing well with it. This is the way he walks, hands up in the air and a huge grin on his face. Very cute.
Notice his fingers on his left hand are crossed. He does this a lot. It is so cute!
A picture of Nick, sleeping on the living room couch, when he was still recovering from his bout of pneumonia. He's all better now and finished with his medication.
This is the same day Nick was sleeping on the couch and Ben was playing in the living room, wishing Nick would wake up. I thought this was too funny. He will sometimes lift one foot off the floor, so he can lean into the toy basket further. He actually fell in head first once and it was hysterical (he was not hurt). My mom and sister were here to see that and we all had a good chuckle.
Ben, palming the ball. He was excited when he realized that he could do this.
