leon is one crazy funny kid. we've been playing hide and go seek on the bed. i hide behind a piled up blanket and pop my head up at various points. leon thinks it's the most hilarious thing and laughs hysterically while wiggling and flopping like a seal.
he is also trying his damndest to crawl. this means more push-ups, but he still hasn't figured out how to get up on his knees. this frustrates him to no end. i prescribed more tummy time, which he does somewhat grudgingly. like me, patience isn't one of his strong suits.
i also find it fascinating that his favorite objects are paper and electronics. even trying to edit my chapter is a perilous task because his sticky little hands are constantly trying to grab the sheets of paper and stuff them into his mouth. crinkly plastic is also a major draw.
sitting, crawling, walking, eating solids. i feel like all of these things are going to happen in rapid succession very very soon. let's hope his sleep schedule settles down soon, too.
speaking of crawling, does anyone have recommendations for padded floor mats? i like the skip hop foam tiles, but i have a feeling that the cats would completely destroy them in about two days. even the cheaper foam tiles would suffer the same fate. i don't know, but the thought of having to clean up the ripped up foam bits every day is unappealing.
