He has been keeping us very busy with all his moving and exploring! Grandma Sandie says he sounds a lot like Uncle Joey when he was as a baby, and Grandma Lori says I was the same way...
pull himself up to standing, which he does anywhere and everywhere, the bookshelf is a particular favourite (with the addition of pulling all the books off and even an attempt to climb it like a ladder, yikes!), so is the sewing machine case (how he adores to press the metal buttons and open up the latches), if the bottom dresser drawer is slightly open he will pull himself up on that reach for the next drawer handle and boulder to the next one, the coffee table has the perfect metal rods to lift himself up and scale across, the kitchen chairs are also a delight. So basically we have to watch him like a hawk, he is fast and furious.
The park is a favorite with the glorious tress, so is the coffee shop that has all the fun toys (he loves the train table and the bead things on the metal that they always had at dental offices...), and the amazing Hillcrest pool is my new happy place (huge family change room, the coolest kids pool ever that has a lazy river and you ride the current, oh and the hot tub is my favorite, and Dan's personal favorite are the insanley high diving boards, we just wave to daddy).
Elijah is loving mixing bowls, he will play them like drums, flip them over, push them across the tile (making a terrible sound), unstack them, bang them together, and of course try to eat them. He also loves measuring cups, whisks and spatulas. His toys are old news this month.
