Ethan has been pretty good at grabbing whatever happens to be within reach when he feels the need, but his skills recently took a little leap. Since he enjoys munching on burp cloths so much, I recently introduced him to a little cow blanket.
On Monday, I set him in his swing and put the cow blanket on his stomach. When I checked on him a minute later, it was just in time to see him look at the cow with intense concentration and very deliberately reach out with both hands to grab both horns. The purpose in his eyes kind of blew me away.
The following is a picture of the tail end of a reenactment later that day.
On a side note, Ethan has also developed some mad spit-bubble blowing skills.
