In Which Connor Discovers His Hinges

So today Connor discovered that his legs have these crazy hinges on them, and it is possible to actually bend them while standing up.  Who knew?  Before this he very emphatically believed that standing up required one's knees to be in the firmly locked position, and that it was only possible to bend them when it was time to sit down.

So now he has discovered the joy of bouncing!  He spent about twenty minutes today carefully bending his knees just a little, straightening them back up again and then laughing about it maniacally for several minutes.  Connor has what is quite possibly the best laugh ever in the history of everything (here's a sample, if you'd like to hear it), and it's incredibly infectious.  So there was a whole lot of giggling and silliness going on this morning.  Hearing those adorable little squeals of joy just makes my whole day brighter.

So after Connor thoroughly wore himself out with his oh-so-careful bouncing, we decided to go to the park.  Unfortunately the second we got there and unloaded it started to rain.  So we got back in the car and went to get some lunch instead.  After that we spent some time tooling around in various craft stores, shopping the sales for art supplies.  One can never, ever have too many art supplies, and I was feeling the creative bug today.  So after Connor went to sleep I spent some time working on my Steamcon costume to scratch my crafty itch.  I think that so far things are going pretty well!

So now we'll be adding a daily bouncing session to our normal routine.  An physical therapy exercise that generates as much giggling as laundry day and box delivery day?  Sign me up!

Connor needs a trampoline!! Remember being on ours the morning after that big rain storm that knocked down the trees (and the bats)? I think I have a photo somewhere...

I would love to see a video of his bouncing. Sounds absolutely adorable!

I have to buy a new camera cord, and then you will get many, many pictures! Also video! I promise!
