Several times over the last few days I’ve noticed that Reindeer will put his arms out and lean toward me when he wants a cuddle or a lift. He doesn’t do it often but it makes me feel very special when he does as I haven’t seen him do this for anyone else.
It is amazing to remember that just a few weeks ago he was so passive, his behaviours limited to sleeping, eating, crying and looking around. Now he makes various sounds and is grabbing at the world around him. In a few more weeks he’ll be independently mobile and taking himself out to his world. Exciting times ahead!
