On the Almond update: he rolls over on accident but hardly on purpose. Put him on his belly and he does push-ups. He doesn’t quite crawl but he can get a few feet. Although sometime he goes in the opposite direction than he wants and this upsets him. Stroke his chin or neck (or wipe the moisture away) and he giggles. Look him in the deep royal blue eyes and talk to him and he grins enough to make your day or week better because you’ve spoken to him and that’s all he’s ever wanted.
Hold a soothie up in front of him and watch while he reaches first with one hand and then another to guide your hand and it to his mouth. Yet stay near b/c when he grins that he got it right it will fall out.
Put a hand across his torso with thumb on ribs and fingers on opposite ribs and wiggle wrist back and forth to complete giggles and more of those grins.
And these type of things make up for the usage of a dozen bibs in a day (need more pref side shoulder snap). It makes up for the four minimum and sometimes fifteen wardrobe changes not just of himself but also of his holder.
