Boys and their toys
Since Joey is pretty much sitting up on his own now, he has been using every toy as a drumstick and anything as his drum. It is funny how now that he has a different view (sitting up) he has found new ways to play. everything that we have bought up until now has been some type of dangly thing or a teething toy or a soft book (everything goes to his mouth since he is teething) As we were walking through Target tonight picking up a few needed items, such as dog food, paper towels (and the cutest $3 onesie) I decided to walk down the toy aisle and see what were somethings he might be interested in now that he is sitting up. Oh my... are there a million and 1 things for kids to play with. At this age (6months) everything is a "developmental toy" Ok... so I know he is learning everyday how use his hands and do different things, but how do you choose from all this stuff? I really just wanted something simple, not to big for him to be able to play with while he is learning to sit up (he is still a little wobbly) And then I saw it! something I recognized from when I was a kid. The Fisher Price Brilliant Basics Rock-a-stack. Now I am sure it had a much simpler name back then, like stack of rings or something. lol. So for about $5 we got a fun little thing to bring home. And the rings are soft so Joey can bite them all he wants to. Perfect!
Fast forward... He played with it for a bit and it helps him practice sitting up... BUT what does Joey want to play with and is his new favorite thing you ask???
Yes. there it is. The Huggies wipe box! I think this goes back to his found ability to "drum". lol.
Note to self... do not buy random expensive toys. :)
