Matthew's made quite an advancement this week in the processing of the world around him. He's realized that toys can be fun and that putting them in your mouth helps your gums feel better when they're sore. Now that's obviously not rocket science, but it's a lot in the brain of a five month old.
Watching him today struggle to get the flower on his excersaucer in his mouth I was struck by the level of concentration on his face. He spent a good ten minutes pulling the flower towards him and straining on his tippy toes to reach it. It was an amazing thing to watch. I'm so blessed to be able to watch these daily transformations as he becomes an active part in the world around him.
