Playing

Charlie has started doing peek-a-boo. He acts like he's going to nurse and then buries his face under my boob. If I say "Chaaaarlie? Where's Charlie?" he'll flip his face up to see me and grin and laugh. Over and over and over.

 

So cute :)

 

He's never been very thrilled with it if I'm hiding my face or anything, he likes to do it himself.

Aw!

 

So far Finn's favorite thing that *he* wants to play is going upside down.  I kid you not.  I'll sit him facing me on my lap and hold his hands, and he literally throws himself back and wants to hang upside down off my lap!  He laughs so hard when he's hanging upside down, and I can just imagine him saying "Do it again!!" every time I pull him back up!! 

 

So fun!

Dominic likes being carried upside down handing by his feet. He just shrieks with happiness when I do it. He thinks his daddy is funny. DH doesn't even have to do anything. just looks at him, and Dominic giggles.

Charlie's an upside down baby, too! It's so funny! I hold him by his hips, though, because it's an easier hold and I don't have to worry about dislocations (I'm neurotic, sue me).

 

Dusty does a lot of flipping him upside down and right side up.

 

He also likes to be held high over our heads - one of our hands on his ribs, on on his higher thigh.

What a fun thread! Eleanor loves going upside down too smile.gif I think her favorite thing is being held on my hip and bounced while we dance, she also loves being lifted high up and down again. She thinks it's hilarious when I wipe her hands and feet witha towel, probably because she's ticklish. Also her favorite part of the day is when we undress her, dh has made a little game of it, making her giggle everytime each item of clothing comes off, its adorable smile.gif

Seth giggles a lot when we're changing his clothes too. His favorite game right now is also being held upside down. Aiden still likes being upside down too, and will often bend over and look between his legs. I guess the world just looks like a more fun place from that view.

Malcolm thinks DF is hilarious, too. Sometimes I get annoyed because when I'm laying down to nurse Mal to sleep DF will lay down behind me and peek over my shoulder at him and Mal will stop and laugh. He thinks his sister is pretty funny, too.


Malcolm loves for me to lift him up in the air and kiss his tummy as I bring him back down. That's definitely the favorite. He also laughs if I look up at the ceiling and then make an excited "ooh" noise and make eye contact with him. Quite the confidence booster, this baby.

The other day I was working on making a felt board for DD and was hammering brads in to hold the felt.  DS thought this was hilarious and laughing with real belly laughs.  He also loves "flying" around the room and will laugh when you dip him close to someone.

Sofie loooves the little girl in the mirror still....every now and than she finds her to be creepy (she follows us everywhere after all) but usually it makes her giggle for a while. She loves being upside down and seems like can hang out there for a while (though mama cannot hold her that way forever). Little belly bubbles are fun too. 

 

She is also loving a little bit of staring followed by a "boo"  - silly mama..

Baby Sam does something similar! Occasionally, when I'm nursing him, he'll pull away and smile, then go back to the boob, stop and smile at me, go back to the boob, pull away and smile....It's a game he initiates and it can go on for some time. It's adorable. He also likes to be lifted up in the air. Alternately, if he's laying down and I lean forward bringing my face close to his face (while saying something in a high-pitched voice) he'll laugh.

 

If I point to myself and say "mama", then point and tap his belly and say "baby" he'll smile. His smiles and laughter are golden.

Same here! NOBODY can make DD laugh like Papa can. She loves it when I sing to her, though. Especially "Zippedy Doo Da." For some reason, the zzzzz sound makes her melt into hysterics. I have a lullaby that I sing to her every night as part of her bedtime routine: it's the same lullaby my mom sang to my sister and me. Well, we were at my parents house and my mom was cuddling with DD because she was sleepy, and she sang that song to her, and DD looked up at her, popped out her nookie, and with big eyes said "AHH! (aka...you know that song TOO?!)" Oh, it was so sweet.

love.gif  Oh that's so sweet!  I sing that song to my kids too.  Followed by "and then Nell and Maggie lay down together under the tree and fell fast asleep..." (assuming that we're talking about the same song :))

I swear Lilah was zurbering/rasberry-ing (whatever you call it) my knee the other day. She put her mouth on my knee and shook her head back and forward making a noise the whole time. It was sooo cute! That's her favorite game to play while I'm changing her.

Magnolia LOVES to be held upside down. Sometimes if she's laying acrooss my lap sideways she'll scoot to where her head is hangin off my lap, touching the couch instead. Last night before I could stop her she somehow managed to kick her legs up and do a backflip.

Haven't so much had the backlip, but totally have the throwing toys off his tray!  Then he cries cause he *needs* his toy.  Not so sure if the throwing it is on purpose or an accident.  He bangs the toys for a long time before they "fall".
