So it's rainy and extremely windy today. When I woke up this morning there was sunshine so I figured the storm from the last couple days had blown over and maybe we could go to the zoo or take a walk with the stroller, but alas mother nature was just teasing me. However I love the rain so I can't complain too much. Nature absolutely fascinates me. I have the utmost respect for it. I can't wait until Skyler is a bit older and able to explore the world outdoors and have fun learning everything there is to learn about it.
Speaking of my tiny little one growing up so darn fast, he's decided he wants to walk now! His balance is still quite shaky so he holds onto my hands and he tends to wobble quite a bit but he takes step after step after step without falling down and it just amazes me. Adjusted his age is only 5 months. I'm pretty sure most babies don't walk at 5 months even with help. Also he stands on his own. He has a toy car that helps babies learn to walk, he grabs onto the steering wheel and just stands there while I sit behind him and make sure he doesn't fall. It's crazy. Oh and he loves his exersaucer now! He's finally tall enough to stand in it all by himself without a pillow underneath him. He stands there and plays with his toys contentedly. Sometimes I put on Little Einst.eins and he just goes crazy, playing with his toys and jumping excitedly.
Here's a picture of him in his swing right now taking a nice little nap. Don't mind the blur, the swing was obviously moving when I took the shot.
Oh and now I remember the real reason I wanted to post! I applied for classes at Hadley School for the Blind! I'm so excited. The courses are free if you're blind or a family member of someone who is blind. I applied for the "Learning Through Play" course which is the same as I'm taking in school right now except it's focused on blind babies!! You have no idea how excited I am. It's an 8 month course, with assignments that need to mailed in and marked by a professor and you get a final grade when it's all done and if you pass you get your certificate. I had been asking around and wasn't able to find anything to do with my ECE and blind babies until now. I'm finally going to learn the best way to stimulate his play and help him explore his world. I'm just waiting to hear back if my application has been approved. I'll keep you posted.
