Orange has been trying (and failing) to get bits of food in his mouth for a while now. He would drop it and get cross and not know where to look to get it back. Anyway, this weekend we had success with the very dull but very graspable baby staple, the ricecake… He is so darned pleased with himself too.
In fact it’s been quite a weekend. Despite being 11 months old and many of his peers crawling and cruising while he lies and watches them, on Saturday he was making serious attempts to move. On his tummy he was grabbing handfulls of playmat and trying really hard to pull himself forwards, while pushing away with his little feet. All that effort was to no avail, but just shows that he wants to do it. From what I understand, that is half the battle.
