It seems Gio sometimes waves as a sign of liking something or someone. For example, he may wave at someone who is not waving at him, or like this morning: He was sitting on our bed, then he looked around (at the mosquito net?) then he started waving.
Gio likes children. He gets excited when he sees them (or sometimes when he hears them) and stares at them and/or shrieks.

Nanny said she had a toothache.
She left around 1:30 p.m. after feeding Gio
Gio slept in my arms at about 2:30 p.m.
I watched a movie.
He woke up at about 3:44 p.m.
My wife called and said I could feed him some fruit.
I grated some apple, washed Gio’s hands (with some effort, since I was carrying him with one arm) and tried to get him to feed himself, since he likes putting non-food things in his mouth. He didn’t feed himself the apple. So I spoon-fed him. (My wife later said it may have been because of the different way I had grated the apple).
My wife came home at maybe 5:25 p.m.
Gio does not like being left alone in the living room. When he realises he has been left alone, he usually cries in protest and moves towards the other rooms of the house where there are people, but the couch and some large cushions block his path. My wife, Gio and I were in the living room. My wife went to the kitchen, leaving Gio and I. Gio gave his usual cry of protest and moved to the couch. Apparently, my presence did not count.
