On Thursday morning, while Carson was at preschool, I took Tanner to his first Gymboree class! At first my Mommy guilt for taking Tanner somewhere so fun without Carson was in high gear, but I kept telling myself that Carson got the same one on one attention before Tanner came along, and it was good for TT and I to spend some quality time together. Tanner had a blast! At first Tanner stayed a distance away from the other kids having fun on his own, and just watching. He immediately found the trampoline and squealed with delight with each jump! After warming up to everyone, he jumped right in and participated in the climbing exercises and made his way across an obstacle to the pull up bar.
Tanner loves to play with balls. There were several scattered all over the floor, and as he picked up this red ball, he said "ball" for the first time! After free play, it was group time. All the kids in the class ran to the mat, while Tanner stayed put on the seesaw and became completely mesmorized! This picture describes it best, haha! But then the parachute and bubbles came out and he made his way right to the center! All of that gym playing makes a little boy tired! I'm excited to take Tanner to class again, and to participate in the open gyms where Carson can come and play with us too!
