Everyday he seems to develop a new skill or gain further mastery in something. He isn't walking...yet. But it doesn't really stop him from getting anywhere and everywhere he wants to go. He's thrilled to practice walking in any form, whether it is cruising around the furniture or pushing the wagon outside at daycare. He is on the move and doesn't like to sit still.
If he has an area where he lags behind on development at all it is in his language, but even in the last few days this seems to be increasing. And really he's not behind, especially considering his premature birth. We keep and eye on it but really he is an observer first and always has been. Plus with the plethora of girls at daycare it may be that he can't get a word in edgewise.
While we began with gender neutral toys and have a wide variety it has become clear that at least for now he favors balls and things with wheels. He buzzes his lips as he rolls his trucks and trains along with him. I keep trying to get a video of it but if there is anything that he loves MORE than balls and wheels it is technology. If a computer, phone, remote control, or camera is within sight reaching it and playing with it (read banging on it and pushing buttons) becomes his sole focus.
I'm amazed by this boy everyday. We've been given an easy and happy child - at least so far :)! We are blessed and everyday is an adventure. I love this baby goat and he makes our family so joyful.
