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!

This might be the best ever! You know he has a plan, you know it makes sense to him. Go Hank! Live the Dream!

This is frickn' hilarious! I love that he stops here and there to sweep up some dirt. That cracks me up.

inspired by hank, i'm going to take a walk down 5th avenue in brooklyn with my broom tomorrow. (though i might actually blend in).

Nothing that boy loves more than: rocks, moss & a broom...maybe add a ball! So fun to watch that little man so intent on getting things done! Love him to pieces!
