First, Nana came to visit for a few days and he loved getting to see her again. She got to see just how opinionated and strong-willed he has become!!
Sharing some cheerios with Nana…he loved to sit with her
We had a great visit and can’t wait to see her again! She taught Jake a fun game of “chase” and he thinks it’s hysterical. Now we chase him around the house crawling, playing hide n’ seek, and yelling “boo!” and he cannot stop the giggles. Actually, I can’t stop MY giggles either Love this kid!
He has also learned to wave, clap, and shake his head “no” in the last couple weeks. We’re not sure if he knows what the head shake actually means but it’s so funny when he uses it in the right context. I’ll say, “Let’s take ONE more bite..” and he’ll shake his head “no”! Or I’ll tell him, “Jake, don’t touch that…” and he’ll shake his head “no” and grin. Kills me.
Jake will also walk all over the house now with our hand-holding assistance and I’m wondering if he’ll start standing on his own soon. He’s done it a couple times for a split second without realizing what’s going on and then just falls down to crawl. Stop growing up!
