If you turn around for half a second…

Inventory Day

Childlocks entered our world a couple of months ago.

toysSometimes Ian will still play with his toys, but only if he can pull every single one out at once and cover the entire living room with them.

DrivingGrandpa’s lap was clearly made as a booster seat to help little boys reach the steering wheel.  Ian doesn’t even want to leave home anymore so long as he can “drive.”  God help us if he ever finds a key laying out after learning how to insert and turn it over.

playing at the doctorsThe doctor’s office is just another jungle gym full of possibilities.

Shoppingsafetyt firstThose warning labels on the shopping carts, the ones that say to strap children in and never allow them to stand in the basket?  Ian can’t read yet, and doesn’t believe us when we read it to him.  He thinks we’re misreading the instructions, and he prefers a better position for digging through my groceries.

Chair StandsThis is a new habit he started Saturday  Aunt Wanda gave him a rocking chair, but clearly adults have been using rocking chairs incorrectly all along.

Dishwasher Jungle GymJust as we’ve misused the dishwasher for so long.

This is what happens when you turn your back while feeding the horses:

And so goes Ian’s day until his batteries run dead.

    Such great photos! 😀 Why do we even have toys for these kids, honestly?! 😛 My 19month old definitely doesn’t want much to do with the ones he’s got…except his toy cars. 😉

    Ian’s exactly the same way! He likes his car and his jeep sometimes, but mostly he tries to get his hands on our electronics!

      Yep, electronics of ours and anything outside! If he can go outside, he will !
      Does he like the horses? Samuel loves dogs and cats (not that we have either, but he loves them! lol)

    He likes the horses, but LOVES his dogs. He giggles and squeals when they bark, and rubs his face in Chaco’s fur.
