First thing in the morning (usually, much too early) is when my little is the happiest. He wakes up giggling, looking back and forth between his mama and his papa and smiling when he catches our eyes. It makes the mornings a little easier, especially when Z and I would rather sleep in. Co-sleeping allows such a beautiful interaction in those early hours, I couldn’t imagine not having Odin there first thing!
Although little man is becoming quite the sitting up pro, he still quite easily loses his balance. I surround him with pillows when he sits on the floor and falling back seems to entertain him enough to distract him from frustration. Having a big bright glass door near his play area helps to entertain him as well. He loves being outside but loves looking outside almost as much.
