Well...I guess it is just a toddler thing...

Just got my weekly "Toddler" newsletter and the title was, "How Quirky is Your Toddler?" I guess we have the answer to the post below!

Is this developmental?!

Hank has been taking to inanimate objects lately...the other night it was two large spoons (I went in to help B put him to bed and he was clinging to the spoons for dear life).
Today, it has been all about the broom. Not his little hand broom, but the large kitchen broom. He insisted on carrying it around the house this morning while Grandma was watching him. But, it's gotten kind of weird - like he insisted on going for a walk to the mailbox WITH the broom. Each attempt I made to take it from him (or convince him to put it down) was met with a fit. So, we took a walk WITH the broom. You feel kind of awkward walking the neighborhood with a 1.5 year old who's carrying a broom. Like I'm forcing him to do it or something! And let's be honest, it's a little difficult for him to carry! You'll notice he was being kind and stopping to sweep some dirt along the way. I can't stop giggling whenever I think about it!

Workin' for a livin'

Hank and I got to visit B's work a few weeks ago while I was on break. It felt funny going to my dad's old work, but with my son. A very grown up moment! Everyone there laughed that I probably knew the place better than they did (I at least knew where to find the best pens and notepads-haha). When we were little, my mom used to load the three of us into the car and we'd drive downtown to pick up my dad at the old Customs building...we'd see his work, the bums all around, and all the sights of the city. Now we're starting that tradition again, but with the new Customs building. Talk about a full circle!

Video 2: Hank making his own breakfast with grandma video

Video 3: Hank discovered that he loves the animals (Backyardigans) on this chair/couch polyester thing (aka: a parent's nightmare to have in their house). You'll hear us try to convince him to pack it up and instead, he decides to lounge just a bit longer. Pretty goofy. At least he was content to do that all at Babies R Us and then leave...without it. Phew!

Valentine's Day!

I was so excited that I remembered Hank had a pair of bright red overalls from the Reiber boys. They were a little big for him, but the perfect thing for Valentine's Day! Grandma and Grandpa came over with gifts and, imagine that, he loved it!

Now, on to the present!

Boots and a book!
Well, the new boots were cooler off than on - they're a bit too big and he loves the IDEA of them, but can't quite walk in them yet.
