I'm really hoping today was foretaste of my future as a stay at home mom to a toddler. We had a great day! He was so happy and silly. I guess he did get two good naps. Otherwise I'm not sure why he was so silly, but I certainly enjoyed it. I hate Daniel wasn't home with me all day to enjoy his antics. Warning this post may is kinda corny:)
He really has enjoyed his present from us, it's the first time he has been interested in a gift from us for more than 2 seconds. I found this nice family on Etsy that makes blocks in unfinished different types of wood. I really want to get Simeon some nice, eco friendly toys without breaking the bank and this fit the bill. I love the color variation of the different types of wood. He really enjoys pulling the blocks out of the bag and seeing what shape and type wood he has grabbed!
I will speak about my love of Etsy briefly, it is wonderful. I can buy from small business from my home. I love to support small businesses especially after running my tiny bakery from home for a few years. I have found that people on Etsy offer some great products for great prices and are happy to customize for picky people like me.
Other fun moments we enjoyed today. Simeon was interested in a candle in our prayer corner. I picked it up and sniffed it and he tried to sniff it too. It was so funny because he was breathing in and out of his nose trying to mimic me. I guess you had to be there...
Another silly episode, he has randomly thrown himself on the floor and while laying on his belly started kicking one leg and looking up at me like some sort of model. I have no idea where that one came from. I'm hoping he has inherited Daniel's delightfully sometimes silly personality.
We had a good day, I think the rain bringing a little coolness definitely helped my mood. I'm thankful for all our many blessings.
