Harry was a very clingy infant. For the first few months of his life I could hardly put him down, it was not until he got control of his hands and could suck his thumbs that I was able to get a small measure of freedom. He was still very interested in keeping me in sight and would freak out if I left the room. Slowly I gained more and more freedom.
I am seeing some of that freedom slip away. I think that Harry is having a bit of a regression. Awhile back I read a really great child development book I learned about on Ask Moxy (which is an awesome parenting advice blog by the way). Basically it states that kids go through periods where they are doing great and moving right along and then about six months later they regress. Harry is in that crazy and frustrating regression period. If he could, he would sit on my lap all morning long (unless he found something really interesting and I mean really). Harry's legs have seemed to stop working and I find myself carrying him around a lot more. Little things seem to frustrate him more than previously.
At least I can comfort myself with the thought that this is just a phase. Hopefully I will get my lab back before long.
