When he sits in his high chair, too, he's always moving. He's constantly kicking his feet while he's eating, and he's started rocking back and forth in his chair. This makes it kind of hard to feed him! I don't want to accidentally jab the spoon down his throat! When I put a bunch of food on his tray, he'll eat the stuff that he wants, and then he picks up the other stuff and moves it to the sides of the tray. Sometimes he'll go back and eat the stuff on the sides, but most of the time he wants nothing to do with it.
Hunter is getting the hang of things, too. I pulled out a little wooden alligator toy that's on a string this week. I showed him how it worked a couple of times by pulling the string, and now he can do it. If he sees the string laying on the floor, he'll pull it across his body to make the alligator move. I talk to him a lot, but I'm going to start being more intentional with my words and point things out and try to build the vocabulary in his brain.
