Gage has become an expert at pulling up. He constantly pulls himself to stand at the baby gate and to walk around in his crib. He's also gotten great at sitting back down - he'll stick his butt out as far as he can without letting go and then he'll just plop down. So cute. Well today we made it to Gymboree for their play and learn class at 1:15pm. It's a 45 minute class for 6-10 month olds with a lot of music, playing, dancing, etc. The minute I put him down on the playmat, he was on the go. He immediately crawled over to a little girl baby and said hello. He was such a social butterfly - all of the other kids pretty much sat with their parents, but Gage was crawling around to everyone to say hello and play. He really liked the slides, baby soccer and the bubbles. He got a little nervous under the parachute - I think the loudness was a little scary AND it was the end of the class and he was pretty tired. Overall he had a great time. He was talking to everyone and laughing a lot - we both enjoyed it. We signed up for one month to see how we like it - it will be a good option for J during the week and something we can do together on Saturdays.
He took a 2 hour nap this morning before we went to Gymboree and then he fell asleep in the car on the way home. When we got home we just put him (still in the car seat) in his room to sleep a little longer and he took another hour nap. Unfortunately I think he was pretty worn out because he woke up still pretty tired and crabby. We watched a little Yo Gabba and tried to just keep it nice and laid back for a bit. He finally got a second wind and started playing with his toys and having fun. He's been paying a lot more attention to J the last few days - when we both hang out with him it's not all me - and it's been a lot of fun to watch him interact with both of us. We all had a good time playing and talking today.
