Hold On

Palmer has a death grip. The first day in the hospital he picked up the Q-tip the nurse was using and swung it around. He often grabs my hair and usually pulls out a few strands in between his fingers. His hands are almost always dirty because he won't relax his grip long enough for us to wash them. Every once in a while we like to have a little fun with him and put random objects in his hands for him to hold on to. The other day Greg put a flower in his hand and he looked so sweet; I had to take a picture.

Yesterday he purposefully reached for the frog chime that hangs from his car seat and was playing with it. How fun it is to see him learn and grow.

Taylor's got a pretty good grip as well. She always holds her hands together so tight they start turning white. She then gets mad because I think it starts to hurt and she doesn't know how to let go. That's fun that he's learning to do new things! I love babies!

HE looks so big here! I love that he can hold onto anything, well except for the hair. That probably hurts a bit.

larkin was the same way, and his hands were always dirty. try smelling them, if it's anything like larkin's they probably stink too.
