Do you "Arm Dance"?

Jax is on the move. No, not crawling and such, but we're getting closer with every day that passes. Right now, he’s starting to exercise what one day might possibly turn into his “smooth operator” moves…you know, dance moves. Or the beginnings of dance moves. When a baby starts to get mobile, it seems that the first thing that they figure out how to move all around is their arms…thus the arm dance is born.

Whether he’s sitting or laying down, when Jax gets super-excited about something these days, he starts flailing his arms up and down, up and down. And with some force – in fact, if he’s laying on his back when it happens, his arms actually hit his own stomach, making a loud, thud noise. Whack! Whack! Whack! When he’s sitting or “standing” these sudden motions can throw him off balance, making him topple over or sway around crazily in our arms.

Oh, and the facial expressions that go along with the arm dance…priceless! Don’t believe me? I enter the following photographs into evidence for your consideration…





Notice that I'm moving my own head back out of the line of fire???





This is about where he lost his balance on my lap and sat down with a thud...





The grins come out in full force and he starts "arm dancing" while sitting...














Yeah…it’s pretty funny to watch. But didn’t you just love that toothy grin that he gave somewhere in the middle of all of that?!?! Melts my heart everytime!
