Mini Push ups!

After the bath today, I put Ryan in his crib on his belly and turned his mobile on to encourage him to look up , and he pushed up with straight arms! This is a really important skill for him to learn as he needs it to learn to crawl, and to be able to save himself from falling. Without doing these mini pushups he wont strengthen his tricep muscles and shoulders and be able to bear weight on his arms.
We are still having alot of trouble with getting rid of the baby food. He had some sherperds pie last night, finely mashed but I ended up wearing it. He was gagging with every bite. He can handle the stage 3's totally fine so it might have been the different texture he was objecting too. We just have to keep trying new things with him. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.
