It’s been a fun past week. We’re trying to get Jace used to wearing sandals. Usually he doesn’t need shoes, but we want him to be able to stand and walk around holding our hands when we’re in Arizona, so we figured we should get something to protect his feet from the hot pavement! He’s not thrilled with them yet, but we’re practicing.
The animals are starting to be more tolerant of Jace. The cats are definitely less skittish around him now. Cuervo loves hanging out by the high chair, but still runs away when Jace makes any attempt to “pet” him.

Stretching to the Macarena – video
Apparently, Jace has tight shoulder muscles. The therapist recommended stretches to help loosen up the tightness. The only ways Jace likes stretching is when we “dance” to the Macarena or when Adam stretches his arms up, pins them, and tickles him!
So Close to Crawling – video
Jace wants to crawl. He really does. Cuervo is still the best motivator – he seems to be the only thing Jace will attempt crawling towards – but Cuervo has a tendency to move before Jace can really get started crawling. Jace has gotten pretty good at getting up on his hands and knees, though. And he can even get back into a sitting position afterwards, as opposed to just face-planting like before!
