Last week, Charlie and I started Mommy & Me classes at the YMCA. He was fascinated with all the goings-on. He loves the music though he didn't engage very much, likely because the songs don't make sense to him yet. He seems to mostly observe though he does enjoy constantly knocking down a block tower that another mother constructs for the kids.
When we went into the "gym" area, Miss Lora rolled him down a foam wedge a few times. This is an activity she does with all of the willing participants. Ever since this was introduced to him, I have seen him lay on the floor periodically and try to work on this new skill! Initially I thought he was tired, until I realized what he was doing. He's been practicing his new skill this week too.
There was a twinge of sadness the first day when the bubbles came out. Last February, I remember posting of Daniel and his absolute fascination with bubbles in this very same classroom. Charlie is fascinated with them too. The photos below are my "bubble boys", Daniel last year and Charlie this year.
