With getting good at walking comes new goals and challenges for my boy.
Exploring vertically is the new walking, apparently. Anything he can climb into or onto or through is fair game. This new territory brings a few more bumps and tears with it but over all I am impressed by his ability to try his limits without foolishly exceeding them. Let's hope this early wisdom turns out to be a character trait.

It amazes me every time he learns new skills so quickly and well through playing. I only showed him once how to put the blocks on the pegs and away he went.
This train is another aesthetically (and sentimentally and educationally) pleasing toy. Not to be a snob but it is definitely preferable in my eyes to the piles of junk so readily available these days...

He likes the computer
and has the typing thing down.
He'd even be great with a touch-screen model.
I guess all that's left is spelling, then.

"What was that?"
This would likely look better in black and white (love the chair, hate the pattern/colour) and possibly cropped and/or background blurred but I so rarely edit photos I often forget about the possibilities. Or we could just take a second to visualize how cute these pictures could be were they properly edited...

Why isn't my bead-head ever this cute?

Stopping in at a Salvation Army I picked up a nice plain wood toy box today. I couldn't be happier to get toys off the floor and potentially out of sight. I also donated a little pile of his toys (yes, he already has extra) so am happy with the improvement!
Logan's been crazy about hats for a while now and often will walk around wearing one he's found around the house. This one of mine fits his head a bit better than his dad's hats. Don't you just want to squeeze those cheeks!

These things are a great idea until stepped upon.

Happy New Year! Having various issues with the laptop, I have posted very little in the past while but life has by no means slowed down. I hope to have things to say once I can say it better. For now just another picture to fill the gap...
