A new discovery

James made a discovery yesterday. He realized that there is a whole world outside our apartment that is just out of his reach! He found the window.

Now, he's looked out the window before, but really only in passing. Yesterday, however, he pushed over his train, climbed on top, and just stared out the window.

He babbled away, slapped the window, and looked all around. It was very cute to watch. And--get this--he stood like that for literally an hour. An hour! I'm not even exaggerating! By the end he was starting to get frustrated because he wanted to go through the window instead of just looking through it. I eventually picked him up because it was time for his nap, but I wonder how long he would have stood there?

Later last night, after dark, he crawled over to the window again. This time we think he found his reflection because he just stood and stared. No babbling, no slapping the window, no waving around. He just stood there silently. It was bizarre.

I wish it wasn't so cold outside so I could actually take him out there more often!

I got a good laugh out of this!! I can't believe he stood there for that long! He is such a funny boy. And it seems like he going to like the outdoors :).
