William is Twenty-Nine Weeks

It seems like we’ve been thinking forever that William was teething, especially at the four month point. Now he has two teeth, one poking out a bit more than another

He’s been eating baby food since his six month birthday, yet, he’s not always into the experience. There are days when he’s happy to eat and days when it seems more like an obligation to him.

He is so lucky to have so many different places to visit and people to help take care of him – his own little village. As the church nursery staff trade off, I never know until I open the door who will be the ones to watch him that day.

Joanna in particular enjoys making faces with him to see his expressions and reactions.

Joanna had stated that she thinks he would be officially crawling by now. We’ve been working with him to give him lots of practice.

He’ll move his arms the right way, or his legs the right way, yet so far he hasn’t made the connection how both work together.

Candy likes helping him practice taking a few steps. Developmentally, he most likely will crawl before he pulls himself up or takes a first step. Yet, some babies do skip crawling altogether, so anything is possible.

Sophie is definitely one of his favorite toys when he’s in his carseat, whether he is asleep or awake.

He also enjoys spending time on his activity mat with many different colorful and moving pieces to keep his attention.

Since he can’t crawl just yet, he moves around in a combination of rolling and scooting. He can get quite far like that.

We have to keep an eye on him making sure he is safe as he moves about. This display case is made of wood and glass, so now we move him back from reaching it just in case.
