We've been taking Tommy to the park a lot these days, now that the weather has been really nice and he's more aware of the world around him. He's well acquainted with grass, but he still isn't too sure what to make of it. He usually just sits and tries to keep as little skin from touching it as possible. If he does want to get somewhere by crawling, he'll try to crawl with one hand, which has pretty funny results. He met the sandbox today, and after about 5 mins of staring at it, he decided to dig in and pick up handfuls of sand and let it fall through his fingers. I was pretty amazed he didn't try to stuff it in his mouth. Progress! He also enjoyed the baby swing, and especially loved watching his shadow on the ground below him. We brought some bread to feed the birds and they walked right up to us to eat it. Tommy was fascinated by all the pigeons, ducks, and geese everywhere around him.
