While Paula was in Kansas this past week, she was talking with our friend Ellen Mellard about Joshua. It seems he should be holding himself up by now and he had yet to do that prior to the trip. When Paula got home, she placed Joshua down on the ground on his tummy to work with him on holding himself up. Before we knew it, Josh had propped himself up and rolled completely over. Paula put him back on his tummy and he promptly did it again. He’s getting strong.
He’s still talking and talking and talking. He particularly likes watching Ellie play. Ellie is happy to try and include him in her play…she’ll often hand him an extra toy by placing it on his chest or on his hand. Paula was reading a book to Ellie and before each page was turned, Ellie would turn the book and show the picture to Josh.
