Why Buy Toys?
So the other day I was doing my weakly "heavy cleaning". Isaiah was helping me as he usually does by enjoying some time in his standing frame and chatting to me in his developing language (Isaiah-ese). I had given him a couple of his toys to play with as I moved him around the apartment, dusting, vacuuming, mopping, the usual. We started in the kitchen and somehow, Isaiah got a hold of the large black plastic spoon we have. He played with that spoon for 45 minutes as I cleaned the rest of the apartment (one of the joys of a small apartment, never takes too long to clean!). Isaiah's getting better at keeping himself occupied, but I don't think that he has ever played with one object for as long as he did that spoon. He didn't drop it or even act like he was going to throw it one time! Even after I took him out of his standing frame for us to eat lunch, he wanted the spoon.
So maybe we'll just get him fun spoons to play with...
Loving on the spoon
And of course, like everything else, the spoon ended up in his mouth
