today, with a little guidance and encouragement, egon posted some shapes through the holes in his shape sorter!
and i must mention that egon’s recently (as in today really) been holding things out for me to take from him (and then taking them straight back of course) and doing so over and over, and also actively playing a game with me, where my toes slowly approach him until he grabs at them, at which point they scurry away, squealing. giggles a-plenty!
egon’s been refining his fine motor skills recently - sitting for long periods of time putting blocks inside cups, taking them out again, repeat repeat repeat :) i also saw him stack two blocks today for the first time (he’s obviously been trying for a while now, but only just getting the idea of letting go of the block once it’s in place!)
he had his 9-month checkup today - 20lbs and getting tall now too! everything fine and on track. he’s been trying a lot of new foods and favoring lumps over total mush. not keen on holding the spoon himself, but getting good at feeding himself finger foods - spears of asparagus, bread, puffs. he tried to feed me with the asparagus today - very sweet!
egon and penny. BFFs.
we’ve been penning him in in the living room using the coffee table, toy boxes and big green tunnel! but soon we’re moving to a new apartment (where he’ll have his own room! yay!) and it’s time for a fresh start, to properly baby-proof and figure out ‘egon’s space’.
enjoying the tail end of summer, swinging at the parade grounds playground.
and finally modeling this fall’s must-have accessory, the bandana bib. which mummy is currently obsessed with making (because they are easy to make).
