We enjoyed a brunch at Grandma's house and then went home. He had a very nice bath, followed by a massage. He seemed to really enjoy it. Yesterday we found out that he doesn't have any parasites so I broke out the cloth diapers! I decided I should try to get some videos of Simon up on this blog. As we hung out with my friend Lynette, in between feedings, I took some videos of Simon for your enjoyment.
When we picked up Simon from the orphanage, we were surprised when he started cooing in the van. Since then he has been making more and more sounds. We are very proud! Here is a video of Simon chatting.
I don't know if you can tell in this video but while it is a challenge for me to brush his teeth, Simon laughs while I brush them. It makes the fact I have to hold his arms down a little easier when he is cracking up the whole time. (he goes the the dentist this Friday so I am hoping they might give me some pointers, and get the back sides clean, as I can't seem to do that)
Speaking of his hands, Simon is the king of arm movements. Here are some poses that I caught on camera. I remember my friend's dad teaching me how to do the fready dance, Simon has his own dance:
|Ah my head move|
|just snap your fingers like this|
|then play the air maracas|
|Keep shaking them|
|oh, were you looking at me?|
|to be a dancer you MUST take the moves seriously!|
