Pics and Haps
Big Mac gravitates toward all things machine related. He has all of Kin's old toys to play with, and just a few cars, and with no encouragement, he goes for the cars. Even with books. This little car book has become a favorite. He sometimes likes me to read it to him. But, he doesn't like me to turn the pages or touch the book. He wants to hold it, and usually not turn any pages. It's progress with the reading thing anyway.
A trip to the zoo. It's been hard going to uncontained places with Big Mac and Kins. Neither of them are great at staying close, so it's pretty much impossible unless Big Mac is in the carrier or stroller, which he hates. He despises holding my hand, and I assumed he would hate wearing a harness too, but I was wrong. He asks to put it on even at home, and it's given us the freedom to do a lot more. He's surprised me with how accepting he is of not being able to go certain directions and still enjoying the freedoms the harness does afford him. He certainly doesn't just follow along with me like a dog on a leash, but I can at least keep him from going totally in the wrong direction, and I can look around after Kins knowing that he is safe on the other end of the leash instead of hoping he won't dart off while I'm watching her for 1 second.
Here is Kins listening intently in a science class.
