Year 2 Day 219: Happy Feet
Lately when I change Ryan's nappy, he has needed something to occupy his hands so he wouldn't put them...well, where they didn't need to go. His favourite thing to do would be to grab the wipe I had used to cover his bits so he wouldn't hose me down so I found myself forever shoving something into his hands to keep them busy.
The latest development in this scenario is that he has now discovered he has feet, and when I go to lift him to get underneath, he gladly grabs his toes with his hands. I've even caught him with a toe in his mouth (which quite frankly doesn't surprise me at all).
Now, the only trouble with this? Getting him to let go and leave his toes in tact.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
