Aric's Development

We have noticed how concentrated Aric is in his ExerSaucer®.  I have raised it to the next level so he would have to extend his legs more.  He's bouncing, rocking, rolling, and loving it.  Until, AJ comes around is trying to rock him to pieces and toys bounce in his face.  All that grabbing practice has taken Aric to other activities.  He is taking your face and pulling in close to him for a sloppy baby kiss (more like a lick).  He can grab a hold of his bottle and bringing to his mouth.  He is also trying to crawl.  He just doesn't realize that he has to get on his knees!  He has also learned how to hit (more like pat) things with his hands.  Specifically, he will hit your chest or boob (Watch out ladies!  He knows the difference!).  

I just look at him work his body, ab muscles, and figuring things out.  Right now, if we leave him on the couch, he will still be there when we get back but he's flipped or toppled over.  I realize that having a non-mobile baby is quickly coming to a close.  He's almost 6 months old.  If he's anything like his big brother, we have about 4-5 months before he will begin to walk.  Did you realize I skipped crawling?  

Oh well, time flies when you're having fun!
