Those are your hands, son... and you seem to have a pretty good grasp on how to use them (pun intended).

It's not exactly the best time for him to have made this discovery, really. Right as he's learning how to grab and hold to my hair, my hair is starting it's 3-month post-partum fall out. So I find myself constantly checking his little fists to make sure he's not trying to down a handful of my "crowning glory".

But he's so darn proud of himself! He gets this huge smile on his face when he realizes he's holding on to my hair... or the ties on my sweater. And when he does get something - even just my finger - he immediately tries to stick it in his mouth and gnaw on it awhile. The world is so exciting to him right now that I really have to struggle to get him to sit still long enough to eat or nap. But at least he's been sleeping well at night =)
