Now that Ward can (sortofbutnotreally) hold things, we give him a teething ring to play with. And by the amount of time he spends concentrating on getting it to do what he wants, I think it's like the infant equivalent to a Rubik's cube or something. He tries to bring it to his mouth, but he has to have some luck and a lot of momentum on his side in order to accomplish this. Eventually, the ring always ends up like this.
He's not coordinated enough to figure out how to get the ring back down. So, after about 30 seconds of struggle, I guess he just assumes it will just stay there forever and resumes his play while trying to look through his avant-garde baby goggles.
What does this mean about my baby? Is he a whimp? A quitter? Or perhaps just an idiot? I guess only time will tell.
