Taking baths is hit and miss for Anthony, meaning sometimes it's a hit, and he loves it, smiling and laughing all along. Usually it becomes a miss when I pour water over his face (I heard it helps him get used to the water and makes swimming lessons easier later on.) But then again sometimes he doesn't mind the water in his face. He is pretty good about getting dressed in the morning now too. Used to be that diaper changes and getting dressed really upset him. Now he is more likely to get upset if he has a dirty diaper. This is a play gym that his Auntie Lisa gave him. He just recently started taking an interest in it. It used to hold his interest for only a few minutes, but now he will lay there and look at and play with the toys hanging down for much longer periods of time (which is what he is doing now actually). If he can't reach the toy he wants to look at, he will scoot himself until he can reach it. In this picture he has pushed himself off of the boppy pillow to play with the hanging donkey.
The little singing doggy bouncer seat is still a big hit with Anthony. He loves to watch it sing and dance. He starts laughing and wiggling when it's on. I have tried to get him laughing on video, but he is on to me, and every time I get the flip out, he stops doing it.
Its always a sure thing to put him in the air and shake him. Or play elevator. It really gets him laughing, even when he is super grumpy.
Other things that are a hit is his Baby Einstein videos, his pacifier, and he has recently started taking interest in reading books.
Things that are usually always a miss are his swing (sadly) and tummy time. We're working on the tummy time thing though. My sister Rachael has me worried that I am prolonging a developmental milestone (of rolling over) by not putting on his tummy.
