OK. I have to rave about the baby again. Its just so amazing to see him continue to try to walk (and do other things). When he falls, he just picks himself up again WITH A SMILE.
Sometimes, I sense some laziness in him but most times, I'm just in awe of how ambitious he is. If you couldn't walk or even stand steadily, would you attempt to balance on your trolley and push off with one leg? Babies really operate in the mode of 'Monkey see, monkey do' and don't have any idea that there are things that are just not possible. So, when do we learn to say 'I can't'? Will it help if I never mention that word around him? I can always try. At the moment, we just offer him lots of encouragement and applause for whatever it is he is trying to achieve. In a roundabout way, this baby has made me realise and cherish my own parent's style with me. They offered 100% support and encouragement even when they knew I probably bit off more than I could chew.
