After another jam packed day of treadmill training, seeing a therapy dog, playing with toys, and drinking lots of ice cold milk (on his own!) you’d think our little man would be ready for a good night’s sleep. Not by a long shot.
As you can see in today’s video, our little boy is sort of like the Energizer Bunny. He keeps going, and going, and going….and going! An hour or so after lying him down I went in to check on him, expecting him to be sleeping like a baby, but boy was I wrong.
Instead of sleeping, he decided bedtime would be a great time to work on his core muscles. So there he was trying to pull himself up on his crib. It’s so cute watching him try so hard. This little boy is so tough, and I couldn’t be more proud to be his daddy. I love this kid!
But it’s all good, I don’t mind at all. I love how he is so into exploring his environment and solving problems on his own.
By the way, here’s a quick snapshot of his day, just so you can see why I have nicknamed him the Energizer Bunny!
1. All smiles and ready for the day.
2. Working hard on the treadmill.
This little boy seriously rocks the treadmill. It’s so much fun to see how far he has come since he frist started.
3. Not entirely sure about the physical therapy dog.
4. Holding his own bottle!
As we mentioned the other day, we tried lots of bottles before finding the one that worked best. But what’s funny is Noah really likes to use these little “cheapy” bottles as opposed to some of the more expensive bottles. We don’t mind because they are a.) cheaper and b.) we get to watch him hold his own bottle. And man, oh man, it’s cute!
5. Work hard. Play harder!
There I was playing in the floor with our son, laughing and having a good time, and then all of a sudden….HE’S OUT! Yelp, out like a light…or so I thought.
6. Working out at the gym…in his crib!
Our son really has gotten his money’s worth out of his crib. Not only does he like to sleep in it, but he has turned it into his on personal home baby gym. I’ve already caught him turning it into a crawling exercise machine, and tonight he magically transformed it into a pull up machine. You see what I mean? After a long day, he wants to keep going…and going…and going….!
This kid works (and plays) hard!
And I’ll say it one more time, I love every second of being this little boy’s dad!
