Fooled by my Baby
For weeks, my husband and I have been discussing how Matthew shows no interest in attempting to stand or walk on his own. We figured it was just because our girls hold him constantly! We ordered them to stop carrying him around all the time and to start putting him on the floor more.
Once on the floor more, he whimpered at us. He made it very known that he was not standing up and that it wasn’t in his plan.
I won’t lie, we bribed him! We put his toys on the coffee table and did everything “fun” we could think of to change his mind that walking is a good idea.
It wasn’t until we placed his cup of water on the table that he had a sudden shift of heart. All of a sudden my little guy could stand with ease and even balance himself on his elbows while he drank from his cup. And all this time, I thought there could be something wrong!
Have your children ever fooled you?
