New Toy: Beads + String = Good Times

Hi Vanessa! :)

Here's Parker in our garage (uhhh, think it's time to take out the recycling?) waiting for a wagon ride. One of our projects this summer is to have shelves built in the garage so we can actually put away all of our junk that has accumulated over the last few years! And now that we have a little boy we've added a big wagon, a plastic car, that purple rocking horse thing in the background, and a few other things that always just seem to be floating around in the garage.
April picked up a bunch of new things for Parker to experiment with the other day, and one of them is a bucket of beads with some string! So far he seems to think they're pretty cool.

His enunciation is also slowly getting better. When he says the words that he knows he says them really clearly and distinctly, and he's really good at repeating words even if he doesn't know what they are. In Dr. Seuss' "There's A Wocket In My Pocket" there's a Bofa on the sofa who doesn't seem to care (which seems to be, "I wish he wasn't there" in the video link , strangely enough). But after reading that page I always say, "He's ALOOF!" and Parker giggles and repeats, "He's awoof!", which is pretty funny to hear a 2-year old say.

Don't forget the Zower in the Shower!

Parker looks like he really likes the beads - I can't wait to see him again!

He's been working out so he's ready to move some heavy boxes.
