Just a Box

The best toy in the world? Yes- the famous box. Will and I have been bad parents- and not keeping most of the boxes that we have had.

This was by accidental  – we were rounding up the boxes to place in our recycle bin by the door. Then I walked by and saw Xander playing in it. So lucky to have captured the picture just in time!

What else does your kids play with that are naturally free around the house? Chairs? Cabinets? Why do we even need toys?

 

Growing More and More

Its different with a 1 year old. Every day is different. I can’t predict his eating habits, his sleep habits or his interests in things. We just got back from Xander’s 18 month check up and everything is well! Xander is not quite walking yet, but showing our doctor how he stands and lets go of things, she said its going to be in no time that he will start running! I’m excited and scared.

Xander’s personality is showing more. He like to copy a lot of things we do, he’s very interested in our cell phones and especially our computer keyboards that we are on. (I have to write this while he is taking a nap!) My parents and in laws have been FaceTiming us ever since Xander was born and just now, when he hears a ring on our phones, he’s showing interest that he understands one of his grandparents is on the other line! Xander responds back to questions and actions we do in front of him. His favorite thing to do right now is saying “Yay” and clapping his hands.

I can’t wait to show you more pictures of him progressing, and soon will show you when he takes his first steps!

How old was your child when they started walking?
