Loki sings in the bath tub (video)

Be sure to turn up the volume for this!

His lower abdominal muscles must be getting strong if he can lift his legs like that! Next lesson - removing hands from mouth helps to grab feet.

Although he prefers hands in mouth, he enjoys grabbing feet with hand, pull of socks and put either feet or sock in mouth, with hands :-)

Flo hoorde Loki zingen en kwam naar de computer. Het hele filmpje heeft hij met open mond zitten kijken, af en toe zei hij "ba" (=bad) of "baba" (=zwembad). Hij vond de bewegingen waarbij Loki zijn voeten bijna in zijn mond stopt wel erg interessant.
Toen ik zei dat het Loki was, hoorde ik hem "ki" zeggen (ik weet niet of dat toeval was, maar hij zei het wel).

Ah, so cute! Brianna, DD and I just watched, and all this estrogen led to many "OH"s and "Ah"s of adoring fans.
Now, Loki, you clearly understand how important it is to utterly charm your parents so that they can live without sleeping or relaxing...btw, he looks so healthy and bright--all that hard work struggling with eating is working1

Hey blijerik!
What a party to see such a happy Loki having a bath! Seeing him like this brings him pretty close to The Netherlands... Hope all is well with you three, it looks like it has become more relaxed these days. Miss you. Love, Fransje.

About Loki Sky

Loki Sky is a special little man. He was a very early micropreemie, weighing only 610 grams (1 lb, 5 oz) after 24 weeks, 3 days gestation, born to an American Father and a Dutch Mother in Berkeley, California on October 18, 2008.

On January 11, 2009, while still in the hospital NICU, his one kidney stopped working. It was repaired after three surgeries. After spending time in three hospitals in three cities, Loki came home on February 17. He struggled with eating, and then stopped in July, leading to 8 days in the hospital, a failure-to-thrive diagnosis, and a NG feeding tube. On October 10, a minor surgery installed a G feeding tube. Another procedure replaced it with a new one, and then again with a Mic-Key button in Jan. 2010.

In August 2010, he and his parents moved to the Netherlands.
