We had a great time, as usual. I think for the most part Asher enjoyed having lots of people to talk to and play with. We had fun getting him to point to various things (he specialises in ceilings, doors, lights and Daddy, but will also point to noses, feet, windows and occasionally Mama). We also had a few fun games of "Who will Asher walk to?" - he prefers to walk to his Mummy, but is getting more confident at walking to other people too. It's interesting that he is now starting to choose walking rather than crawling to get from place to place unprompted. Sometimes he even carries things!
Asher's favourite part of the weekend was undoubtedly the time we spent outside. He'll just pause and look around whenever we go out (and our room was separate from the hall where the youth activities were taking place, so we went out several times a day). Here are some photos from Saturday morning.
|I'm not sure what he was looking at in this picture. But he's definitely waterproof!|
|Asher with a very dirty stone that he was absolutely determined to keep on licking. Yum.|
|Asher: "Oooh! Ooh, oh oh oh, oooooh!!"|
|Watching some sheep|
|"But why can't I pick up this rock? My hand is touching it!"|
|"Oh, it's too heavy. Silly me!"|
|This was perhaps Asher's happiest moment of the entire weekend.|
