Peewee-pint Is On The Move...
This week, Peewee-pint has discovered the freedom of mobility. He has become more adventurous and is going beyond the boundaries of the room where he was set on the ground. A few days ago, I had to go upstairs and left Peewee-pint playing with toys in the family room. As I was making my way down the stairs again, I realized he had come looking for me-nearly half the length of the house, then when he couldn't find me, he turned around again and started heading back towards the family room.
He makes a b-line for the open door when Daddy comes home...it's a straight shot from the family room-across the hard wood floor. He's getting pretty fast, but not fast enough for none of us (especially his brothers) to notice his attempts to escape.
He has figured out he can scoot around to get to things he wants...like the toys his big brothers have...this week, the boys were playing with duplo legos. Peewee-pint is a master at lego demolition. He chased both boys around the kitchen island and then took a shortcut under the kitchen table to get at the lego masterpiece Half-pint and Quarter-pint had built.
Peewee-pint also discovered the he can make bigger and better messes by pulling things off of shelves. A new favorite activity is pulling the books and binders off the bookshelves in the office, and cereal boxes out of the pantry. If he's really lucky, some of the cereal will spill on the floor and he has an instant snack!
When he wants me to pick him up, Peewee-pint scoots to wherever I am and head-buts my ankles, or gnaws on my foot until I lift him up...
