Sitting Up – and Staying Up!
Jace does pretty well sitting up on his own – no pillows necessary. My new discovery is that putting the boppy pillow around him is still a good thing…. That way when he does tip over, he can get himself back into the sitting position!
Jace takes medicine for his reflux. It tastes horrible, so twice a day we give him about 1/4 ounce of milk in a bottle while we sneak the syringe with the medicine into the side of his mouth. Works like a charm. Lately, Jace has been very interested in holding onto the bottle himself. He’s getting pretty good at finding his mouth!
And now, Hanukkah! I tried to let Jace hold the candles before we put them in the menorah, but he just kept trying to eat them. That’s the theme lately – everything goes straight to his mouth. Jace was pretty interested in the candles even before we lit them (picture one), but he was mesmerized once the candles were lit (picture three)!
And lastly, look who found his feet! This picture is from tonight, right before bath time. He’d found his toes while sitting up pretty often, but this is the first time I’ve seen him grabbing his toes while he’s on his back!
