Noah's New Game

Noah is slowly mastering his body. He moves around (a little too quickly) by crawling, he pulls up on everything from legs to ledges, and he can get little bits of food into his mouth. He's also naturally started reaching for me or Joy when he's in someone else's arms. This has led to a new game this week we've taken to calling "pass the baby."

If either Joy or I stands next to the other while holding Noah, he gets a glint in his eye (his right one) and makes a wild lunge, hoping to be caught. One successfully passed, he cackles, wiggles his way around, and makes a second lunge back to where he started. He really likes starting with me and flinging himself to Joy because there is a significant height difference so he gets a little air time. I usually end up having to catch him around my waist because he likes that feeling of falling so much. There is no end to this game, and Noah laughs during it more than at any other time of the day. Let's just hope he doesn't try to play it when one of us isn't paying attention.
