Jack and Joseph are both sick today, so we had to cancel our regular playdate (Joseph just has a cold, but he's a total snot factory), so we had to hang at home and have a playdate of our own. We just got Joseph a new toy, which he seems to love (and so do I, since it was on clearance) - a fun wood activity center, with lots of bright colors and things to keep him interested. And it's strong enough to support him when he stands!
Yet no matter how many toys we get, he still loves to play with everything that's not actually a toy - like the phone, shoes, spoons, etc.
And when he's done playing with everything in sight, toy or otherwise, this is what the living room looks like when he goes down for a nap:
Here's a video of him with one of his favorites. I'm not sure if I would actually say he's "playing" with it, as much as beating the heck out of it! And by the way, I hear that little tune it plays in my sleep.
