Recently Ethan has started to jump. He hasn’t quite yet mastered how to jump off of things, but to be honest he scares me enough with his climbing. Adding jumping off of things to a list of his achievements is a nightmare waiting to happen, especially as he has no understanding of danger and fear.
Jumping isn’t just what I wanted to share with you this week, and I suppose it is more of a Magic Moment (one for you Jamie!), but Ethan started to interact with the TV.
We were watching a Peppa Pig DVD for the fifth time that day, and it had just ended so the DVD returned to the menu screen. With the exciting prospect of watching it again no one was really in a rush to hit the play button. So the menu screen played for a while. The menu shows Peppa Pig jumping in muddy puddles. To our amazement Ethan got off of the sofa and started to jump with Peppa Pig, he was interacting with her. Something that he has never done before, I was lucky enough to have the camera to hand so I could capture this moment.
