attachment progress

This afternoon, we had a family trip to Walmart. Eli was riding in the cart, and R was pushing. Eli enjoys the cart as long as you keep moving at all times and don't stop to look at anything! We tried to keep the trip brief, but by the time we were almost finished shopping, Eli was definitely ready to go. He started fussing, and then crying.

The best part was that he wanted me to take him out of the cart and hold him. He reached for me! I took him out of the cart and held him, and he actually stopped crying! He let me console him! I was so happy! It just made my day to know that he is starting to feel comfortable enough that I can be source of comfort to him. YAY!!!

Hi Ana,
That must have been the most amazing feeling. The pictures are so cute - I still say Eli really looks like you! Take care...Teresa

Sounds like you had a very successful shopping trip. I bet it was the best feeling for him to reach his hands for you. Tell me how you keep him in the cart? Bryson seems to always get out of the buckles and stand up. Needless to say, I don't take him shopping much.

How wonderful, Ana! It just makes your heart melt, doesn't it?

That is a big deal. Isn't wonderful to think about the differences in just a couple of months.
