wiggle worm

Hendrix likes to hang out in our bed in the mornings while I am getting ready for the day.  Sometimes he snuggles up and takes a little snooze, but most of the time he likes to be surrounded by toys playing.  (I am still getting used to crawling into my bed only to land uncomfortably on a block or book......)

While he hasn't really shown much interest in crawling or even pulling himself up to things, he sure is getting really good at stretching and reaching.  He finds a way to get the toys that he wants that are just a bit too far out of reach.

I try really hard to not intervene, though sometimes it is difficult as he clearly expresses his dissatisfaction and frustration.  I try to encourage him and soothe him, but let him try and even try again so he can learn how to problem-solve and even get the motivation to become more mobile.  Usually he can figure out a way, after several attempts, and then he is absolutely thrilled with himself!  

Great job big boy!
