The other day was a big day for little Deacon. He's wanting to be more interactive with us, so I bought him a doorway jumper so he could be sitting up instead of laying in the swing or bouncer. He liked it pretty well. Plus it's great for his muscle development! It was so fun to watch him fixate on the face of the toys and move his little arm to try and touch it. He still has a lot of involuntary movements in his arms and legs, but he's definitely gaining more control each day.
After we played in the jumper, Tim told me he wanted to go to the Children's Museum. So we went there. I put Deacon in one of the infant seats in the middle of a table and put some toys in front of him. He once again tried to move his hands and touch the toys. I put them close enough for his hand to rest on them and he really like it. Tim decided he wanted to sit in the chair too. That was fun - until he got REALLY stuck and I had a little freak out moment while he screamed. Hopefully he learned his lesson that he's too little for the baby chairs!
Later that night while Brock was changing Deacon, I noticed how fat our little guy is! It's amazing how much bigger he is in every way than Tim was. I pulled out some of Tim's old clothes today for Deacon and put a shirt on him that Tim wore when he was six months. Deacon isn't even three months yet! I definitely think he'll catch up to his not so big big brother!
And oh, the faces this baby makes!
