Link has a whole list of things that he might be as he grows up, and this weekend we have added a new one: track star. Or maybe just “in track”. He has started racing around the house. He says “ready set go” and runs across the room or down the hall. I guess he was doing that during church also in the hallway with my mom. We’re pretty sure he got that from The Backyardigans (which yes, we let him watch sometimes. He’s smart and developing well, so I’m not too concerned.).
It is so fun to watch him learn new words and concepts. We are working hard on numbers and shapes and hopefully he will catch on to them soon. He knows some of the shapes in his shape puzzle, but I’m not sure he could identify them in different places. I would like to get some at-home educational tools that I could kindly ask his grandmas to do with him. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be very open!
We are in week 12 of Baby2.0’s journey, and that means daily headaches for mama. I didn’t document Link’s pregnancy as well as I should have, so I want to do better with this babe. Mostly for symptoms, because it’s nice to compare and know that it is “normal” for me and pregnancy. I worry a bit too much sometimes, so it’s good to be reassured.
We had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday afternoon at Mall of America with the Gehrings and Richard and Liam. The boys had so much fun together! I love watching them interact. They kind of play with each other. Liam really enjoyed holding Link’s hand at dinner and making him do things with it. Liam also tried to feed Link a few times. Link isn’t around kids too much, so wasn’t quite sure what was going on!
This week should be a good one. Busy as always, but hopefully productive also!
