My dad and Bren's mom joined us last Saturday for Wyatt's first trip to the zoo! Despite the 100 degree weather, Wyatt really seemed to enjoy the trip. He loved the giraffes, seals, elephants and flamingos - he seems to be an animal lover, just like his daddy!
Wyatt is on the move . . . and he is getting faster each day! He loves to explore and realizes now that he can follow us wherever we go, he can open every cabinet and why not put everything that is on the ground in your mouth!! Watching Wyatt learn continues to be one of our favorite things, and now that he is crawling, he seems to be learning so much! He takes such interest in the simplest things - making the door stop spring, running his hand against the heating vent so it makes a noise, and listening to his legs make a funny sound on our kitchen floor are some of his favorite things to do. Besides crawling, he is talking up a storm - he now says "mama" - it's about time!!! He still doesn't appear to have a clue that we are "mama" and "dada", but it is still sweet to hear him say the words! He also has a strong aversion to the word "NO", he gets spitting mad. We see a lot of thrashing, spitting, and crying when we say "NO" - good thing I've got all that behavior modification training under my belt! We are pretty sure he's working on his upper teeth which is resulting in a lot of drooling . . . again! He tries to pull himself up on everything and loves to stand for a few seconds before crashing to the ground. All in all, he's a very happy boy and he brings us so much joy. What a blessing it is to be his parents!
