In just one week of daycare, Henry has learned to take a few steps on his own. They’re really tentative steps and it’s more like a pivot/shuffle thing but the look of pride on his face is one that melts your heart. He’s also now a big fan of being walked around the house with one hand. It used to be that I would hold both his hands up to make him walk and he’d lift his legs up like he was sitting. I took it as a form of protest like “I don’t want to freakin’ walk!” but yesterday I tried it again and he just started walking so quickly. I then dropped it to a one handed thing and he kept going. We made a few rounds around the ground floor of our house and my back was killing me afterwards but it was worth it.
We’ve been a little cooped up in the house what with being sick and all and with Henry a bit on the mend, we felt like it wasn’t fair to him to stay at home inside all day, so this morning, Chris and I put aside our colds for a bit and took Henry to the museum of Nature. Henry enjoyed himself but not as much as Chris did. I kind of felt that charging $10 per adult was a bit stiff for what they were offering as exhibits but Chris says the dinosaurs alone are worth the $10.
We got home and Henry was kind of cranky all afternoon, evening which made me feel bad about going to the museum. He slept a little but kind of kept moaning while sleeping. Chris and I still feel a little cruddy too so I made some comfort food for dinner and dessert.
Henry went down for good at 6pm which means he’ll probably be up super early tomorrow. I’m hoping he feels better though.
