Mr. Mitchell is a whole 40 weeks old!
He’s learned lots of new things this week. He’s in the process of learning to play catch (see pictures below, but brace yourself for unbearable cuteness), he’s learned that doorknobs open doors (even though he doesn’t have the dexterity to turn the knob yet), he’s learned how to open and close the diaper pail, and he’s already learned to get something from Mommy, then go get something from Daddy (food now, but I’m sure money will come shortly). He loves playing peekaboo with Justin with the basement door now. Unfortunately, he’s also discovered the air vents in our house. We have the old original huge wrought iron wall vents, and he loves them. The other day right after our shower, I was in the bathroom getting ready, and he was playing with the one in the bathroom. He was sans diaper, because he had a bit of a diaper rash. Anyway, I happen to look over, and he’s standing in front of the vent, hands braced on the wall, peeing INTO the vent. No joke. So then he saw me take the vent off the wall to wipe the pee out of the duct, and he’s been trying to pull them off the wall ever since. When he isn’t throwing the ball for himself. He just loves playing ball right now. He has two, a big orange one and a small green one, and he throws them across the house and chases them, giggling the whole way. Cheap entertainment for all of us!
Oodles and oodles of pictures this week!
