Happy 40 weeks bedhead!
Two things this week that made me absolutely swoon with pride - we discovered that Graham can follow simple directions AND that he actually remembers the books we are reading to him each day! At our last appointment, the doctor told me to start asking him to do simple tasks, then show him what I meant and he'd understand more quickly than we realized. What an understatement! We started out with a game - during peekaboo, asking him to hand back to us the shirt we were using to cover his eyes...AND HE DID IT THE VERY FIRST TIME! *genius babyyyyyy* Later when I noticed he was tapping his foot during dinner, I asked him to switch feet. AGAIN THE VERY FIRST TIME! Dad, I know you're shaking your head in disbelief right now ("Suuuuure.") so I demand that you watch this video immediately:
Are you not entertained?!?!
Amazing moment #2: we were reading one of his (ahem, my) favorite picture books that has cute little animals hiding behind flaps on each page when he began reaching directly for the flaps the moment we'd come to a new one. He knew exactly where they were on every single page, his cute little pointer finger would go right for them. *tear* He remembers what I'm reading to him!!
