E’s new tricks include standing, grabbing on to cot railings and blowing bubbles at me passionately. This is also why he takes longer to sleep now cause he will hv to do his “ritual” of crawling to my side (facing his cot), pull down bumper sheets, smile at me and then proceed to try and stand.
The other night, I was reading with a night lamp in the bedroom and he was doing his “ritual”, blowing bubbles passionately at me while I ignored him. Finally, I decided to just completely shut the lights so it was pitch-black in the room. I could hear him struggling to hold on to the cot railings cause he hasnt quite figured out how to come back down safely. About a min later, I heard him fall backwards. Soon, there was silence in the room & when I hit the lamp again, he was fast asleep. Hilarious. Like a battery being taken out.
On the other hand, I have been trying to encourage him to sit up instead cause it wld be sooo much more convenient & inclusive to plonk him on a baby chair when we are out for meals. He however has no interest in sitting up on his own and would try to stand everytime he finds a piece of support.
As a result, I think I have had the greatest mileage out of this bumbo chair though he’s now attempting to climb out at the slightest chance he gets.
Oh baby, you are so cute ♡
