“I am just kicking around to become stronger.” – Baby A
I remember kicking as early as when I was in Mommy’s tummy. At that time if I liked something Mommy ate or I wanted to tell her something important, I would kick her. However, since the day I arrived, I have been kicking around. This is the same reason my doctor addressed me as a future gymnast.
Now almost 4 months old I still love to kick. Usually, when I am in the kicking mode, I try to communicate with the people around me. People know that I usually want to play when I am happy and full of smiles. Meanwhile, when I am crying or fussing around, then something is bothering me, like a dirty diaper, gas or simply a burp. Then there are times when I just kick around because I can and feel like.
When I am too hot I kick the blanket off me. However, I can never pull it back so I start crying out loudly, to gain attention. Sometimes I like fun activities and kick hard, just to tell my people that I like it and let’s do it again for some more fun. I also kick when it is my exercise time. Often in the afternoons I kick very rapidly. At this point, I just want someone especially Mommy to calm me down as I feel that I’m overstimulated.
Then there are times I just kick because I like something. Whenever, Miss A wears her panda bear nightsuit, I love to kick and catch hold of the bears. The other day Miss A was not wearing that nightsuit. In the morning I was looking for the bears. When I could not find them, I was a little upset and instead I pinched her on the eye. She got up that very minute but did not say anything to me. She is indeed a darling.
That’s all from my end today as the weekend has left me quite high and dry with all the kicking around I have done.
