Markus did exploit the warm and nice weather on Sunday with a sporty premiere: For the first time he went for a run together with Jakob. The two set off early at 0830 when the Prater was still rather empty and soon after their departure Jakob fell asleep (which was the main task of being out in the fresh air anyway). For Markus it was the first time in almost two months to hit the tarmac again and so he took it really slow but at least he was running for 70 minutes. Given everything went so smooth the plan now is to repeat the sleep-run each weekend (ideally twice) if the weather allows and this way get Markus back into shape.

But not only Markus did increase his activity level over the past as Jakob has started to “test” the right moves for motion on all four extremities. Due to the fact that our parquet is quite slippery and thus attempts are not very easy we provided him with a small carpet runway on which he now is moving slowly forward. What is striking though is that he is not crawling on arms and knees but trying to lift his bum so far that his legs are fully stretched and thus more or less walking on all four. We did prepare already for him to really kick off crawling and mounted the KiddyGuard on our living floor level so that the stairs are no risk for our junior and are already curious when the safety net will be tested for the first time!
