1. Fishies and a bee magnet are the new objects of Henry's desire, and they are what we use to (try) to entice him to crawl. Cross your fingers for us!
So he got one . . . and is talking to it . . . and is totally content leaving the other alone. Shucks.We are trying to teach Henry to crawl, and he really doesn't like it. A few weeks ago we met with an acquaintance, Mahinder, from India. He stuck a florescent pen in front of Henry, just out of reach, and said with a knowing smirk on his face, "I know how to teach him to crawl." Henry reached, and reached, and finally fell forward onto his belly and grabbed the pen. Mahinder did know. But I did, too! I have tried this many times before--enticing him with cool objects--but Henry knows that he's got me wrapped. He knows that if he cries I'll help him. And I'm sure he didn't want to offend Mahinder by not going after his pen . . . right. Anyway, since then this has been our method to coax him to crawl. It hasn't worked yet, but we'll keep trying.
2. This is just Henry being goofy on the floor. He always has his tongue out, the silly boy!
3. Today while I was putting clothes away Henry sat and listened to a Vocal Point CD. I noticed him shaking his head, and got it on tape.
Now I'm not sure if it's because he doesn't like the song and wants to change it, or if he's just really enjoying the music and rocking out. But I think it's the first explanation. I guess he has never been to a VP concert and seen how cool they really are!
