Our little monkey. . .

This past week we've noticed Skippy Jr. noticing his feet. . . he sits in the bath and stares at his feet, he pulls them out of the water to look, he stretches them so they touch the other end of the tub, he kicks the floating turtle thermometer, and last night we noticed him flexing and contracting his toes. . . towards the washcloth.

Let me clarify that. . . He was trying to grab the washcloth with his toes, and you know what? He got it once!

We can't get him to grab toys in front of him with his hands, but he'll grab for things in the tub with his toes. I'm sure if we were to encourage this behavior it could become a very good skill in the future. . . I'm just not sure how it would be helpful.

He is just getting cuter and cuter the older he gets by the way. And what a little tricky guy with the toes stuff.

Wait till he starts munching on them like they are an afternoon snack.LOL It is so cute when they grab their feet and suck on their toes. I noticed Peyton will curl his toes when he eats. He is more into munching on his hands right now. I show him his feet, but he is like whatever mommy.LOL
