Most fantasize that their children love to work and think that work IS play.
Then this last weekend we went to the store to get a baby gate to help contain our enthusiastic crawler. We pulled a smaller gate down and were a little worried that Sufi could flip himself over it. So we stood him up next to the gate to measure him. After, our assesment, I left Sufi holding onto my pants, as Pabbi and I talked. At one point, I realized Sufi had let go. I looked down expecting to see him crawling off...instead we all stood dumbfounded as we saw this:
(This is a re-enactment of what we saw, we were too dumbfounded to grab the camera fast enough.)
Then he grabbed an item off the lowest shelf and did this...
(this is not a reenactment, we actually grabbed the camera by this point)
What was the item he grabbed:
A PAIR OF SHOES!
This boy knows what he wants and needs for his future!
Over the next several days he started doing laps around the house
(don't mind the boxes and bags - again we are in temporary living quarters - ergo "living out of boxes").
What did he grab there at the end...
yes, his booster seat.
This baby LOVES his food!!!
And HIS WALKING!!!
Looks like we are going to need more than the one baby gate!
He just will not be contained!
Way to Go SUFI!!!
We just made a trek of 2,331 miles across the U.S. in FOUR days.
After Graduation, Pabbi was hired on in a small sleepy town on the east coast.
It was a difficult thing to leave behind our friends and family,
We are so blessed to have work especially in the current economic climate.
To be honest, these life changes have been difficult, frustrating, tiring, and overwhelming.
We are still in temporary housing and are looking forward to moving into something more long term very soon.
Until then we are waiting patiently and enjoying the small moments of life.
