Hunter is discovering more and more everyday. He likes to go into our bathroom and open and close the bathroom door. He loves getting and pulling cords, and he wants to touch everything. In the mornings I hold him while I get some of his milk out of the fridge for his cereal. He tries to grab condiments out of the fridge door and is always touching at least something. And boy is he getting heavy! It's hard to hold him with one arm for a long period of time. Such a growing boy!
Hunter learned a new trick this week...he finally figured out if he pulls on his socks, they come off! We were in the car and he pulled one off on the way to Walmart and both of them off on the way home. He had one sock in each hand and was flapping and waving them around just as happy as could be! Hilarious. He likes to try to pull them off all the time now. Good thing it's getting warmer out!
Kathleen said that on Wednesday he pulled the neck of his shirt down to about his belly button and then kept staring at his nipples and playing with them! She said it was hilarious. I really hope I get to see and video this at some point! He was able to do this because he was wearing a 9-month onesie, and it's still too big even though he's 10.5 months. He actually still wears his 6-month onesies! He's in 9-month pants but we still have a lot of clothes for him. We'll see if he hits a growth spurt and finally grows out of the 6-month clothes.
I've noticed a change in Hunter's movements this week, too. Instead of crawling and sitting up, he's pushing up onto his toes and putting his butt in the air. He's doing more spin moves, too. So if he's going somewhere "long distance," then he'll army crawl, but if he's staying close, then he'll just kind of spin around on his hands and toes. It's fun to watch.
Hunter kind of cracks me up with his eating. I may have mentioned this before, but we will put a bunch of food in the center of his tray, and he will eat what he wants and then move what he doesn't want over to the side parts....or sometimes off the sides onto the floor. That part isn't fun, but it's like he doesn't want to see the food he doesn't want to eat. Crazy kid.
