Our friend who is helping us remodel the living room brought his baby son over yesterday while he worked. Dominic was very helpful hanging out with Dexter. He gave him a bottle, kept the dogs away from him, and played the gravity game with Dexter's Binky for HOURS. I am so pleased at the increased maturity.
So Dominic informed us emphatically the other night that it was time to trim his fingernails. I said, "fine, why don't you do it yourself". The below is what transpired. He tried SO hard. I don't think he quite has the pincer grip strength YET, but he's willing and has the idea and I think its imminent. The independence in self care is one of those things we don't talk about a ton, but its a HUGE step. Its not an inchstone.
