I think this past weekend Keegan finally got into toys. He seems to be able to recognize them better and be entertained by them. We brought his activity gym down to PA with us and he spent most of his time playing with it. He was able to grab the monkey's tail by himself and hold the elephant's trunk with help from Tom. It's not like he is looking and grabbing but more like feeling something swing by and holding it.
Keegan did okay in the carseat there and back. We stopped several times to feed him but most of the rest of the time he was quiet. I think by yesterday he was bored to death of being in that seat. He did not sleep well in Pa and I had him in bed with me the whole time. Last night he only slept an hour in his cradle and then I brought him in bed. Thankfully he does still know day from night so that hasn't been an issue.
He is so smiley now. He just whips them out at everyone. It took a little while for him to be comfortable being held by others but then he was perfectly content. Keegan's favorite spot is still laying with Tom in the recliner. He is also very chatty now. He'll talk to his animals forever. But sometimes they must say something back because he'll shriek at them. Needless to say, I am having more fun playing with him each day.
Oh and I am hopelessly in love with him.
