Give me kisses.
Brayden is attempting to sit up with support and trying to find the confidence to hold his head. He cannot roll over, let alone find his way to a sitting position so we prop him up and he acts like such a big boy. He is not always aware of how his body moves but has these moments of wonderful coordinated effort. Months ago he would not even bend and now he actually enjoys being upright. It requires a lot of effort, it exhausts him and still he wants to sit up.
It is remarkable to find that he is understanding our words. He cries if we say "bed" and he does not want to go, he braces when we say "up, up" to pick him up and he kisses when asked...
The kisses are open mouth, a bit messy and we love them.
We taped this yesterday; snow here in Virginia, today ice and two days of no school. The boys and I were camped out in the basement after a long day of playing in the snow. The cleaning ladies were upstairs and we needed to stay out of their way, thus the basement. Trying to find something to occupy the time (instead of video games), I brought out the camcorder. The boys watched their sledding skills taped earlier in the day and then we decided to get Brayden on camera. Carter and Luke did the videotaping. Luke got bored with it and you can hear him playing skee ball in the background.
