Walt’s Hittin’ the Gym! (sans performance-enhancing drugs)

Last Saturday we took Walt to his first MyGym class. Like many similar places (Little Gym, Gymboree, etc), MyGym is a little tyke friendly place for the kiddos to run, crawl, pull, tumble, giggle, and so on.  We weren’t quite sure what Walt would think about it. He’s a pretty social guy, but he also prefers to analyze a situation before committing to it. Like observant and compassionate parents, we threw him right into a class with 12 other kiddos. We were also worried b/c the class technically overlaps when he normally starts his morning nap. It was worth the risk…

Walt had an absolute blast. There were giant balls to play with:

 The pic above is deceiving. Walt doesn’t technically crawl on all-fours. He still army crawls (though does so very quickly). 

We also got to dance around a circle (seriously, what’s with the trucker look with my hat!? It was early, people).

Probably the most exciting thing (for mom and dad) was when Walt got to practice a hand stand (??? he can’t even walk on his feet… how would he stand on his hands??). Welp, he didn’t 🙂 But he sure gave it the ol’ college try:

He loved being upside down… not too sure what to do with his hands. 

We had such a fun time. Walt loved the slide and when he got a turn on the swing.  He stayed awake and alert for the whole thing, with not a single fuss.  Chris got him home and the little monkey crashed out for 2.5 hours!  We can’t wait to see what he gets to try next week.

  1. Looks really fun! I've always wondered exactly what they do with babies at a “gym” class. Now I know! SO cute. And that handstand pic is hysterical!
