Scenes of a Weekend

by Kim on January 7, 2013

Hey there! How was your weekend?

Ours was pretty tame. Mostly, we just hung out.

I did manage to get a run in on Saturday (despite Mason’s wonky napping schedule that day) and spent a lot of time wrapping up a freelance writing project. But those things didn’t photograph very well.

In the meantime, there was a lot of this…

And this…

Mase can’t pull himself to a standing position yet, but he loves to BE in a standing position, so we’ll often park him on the ottoman with some toys. (I didn’t realize how awesome this setup would be for babies-the ottoman is nice and soft, for the inevitable falls, and the tray has a ridge that’s easy for him to hold onto.) He LOVES this, and will stand there contentedly bouncing around and banging toys on the table for hours a few minutes.

Lately, I’ve been trying to encourage him to practice pulling up. (I know he’ll do it in his own time…yadda yadda yadda…but, whatever, I’m getting bored here. A little encouragement never hurt anyone.)

Since he’s not very naturally motivated in this area, I admit that I’ll sometimes resort to bribery, in the form of his most coveted possession: the remote.

Here’s how it works.

Despite the incredible reward, he’s still not thrilled about this exercise.

But he has no problem using the same exact movements to climb into my lap.

Sigh.
