Too big for baby toys and baby food

Anthony is into everything these days. He loves all things not intended for children to play with. Remote control, camera, keys, cell phone, shoes, cardboard boxes, magazines, the dog dishes, toilet water, you name it, if you would rather he not play with it, that is exactly what he wants to do. Never mind that he has lots of toys scattered about my living room intended just for his entertainment. Oh no, they just aren't nearly as much fun.

I still haven't completely unpacked from our weekend away and he has figured out how to climb into the suitcase and go through it looking for new and interesting things to play with. He loves it, every time I bring him downstairs he climbs into it. Maybe I will just leave it out a little while longer. We got a package in the mail today and the empty cardboard box entertained him for 45 minutes. Climbing in and out of it and playing with the air bags used for packing.

Here he is again in the box, notice the ripped up magazine in the background. He destroyed a perfectly good toy catalog. I guess I don't need it anyway. He seems content with the box.

Here he is showing off his new hat. I've been meaning to buy him one now that it's getting cold outside. The last thing he needs is to get sick. He was at Grandma's today and came home with this on. I guess grandma got tired of waiting for me to buy him a hat. Doesn't it look so cute on him? Thanks grandma. He has also started showing a little bit of interest in non-baby foods. Bananas has always been his favorite, if you give him anything with banana in it he will eat it. Well now he is eating a real banana not just the puree from a jar. Whenever Todd eats one he spits out his pacifier (a sure sign that he wants to put something else in his mouth) and gets a few bites for himself.

I keep waiting for that kid to stop getting so cute, I can't hardly believe how cute he is.

I like the song/video! That was pretty cool. You and Rach keep getting more clever about blog things! I think he's just so cute and love that he loves hats! He's a cute hat-wearer!
oh, and I think little Ryan was also a banana eater (you put it in something and he'll eat it!)

There's just nothing like a good cardboard box. Something else he might enjoy playing in is a laundry basket with clean laundry. He would have a great time pulling everything out and then climbing in. Then if you want him to have a really fun time, tie a rope to the laundry basket, put Anthony in it and pull him around the room. I bet he loves it. Let me know if you do.

My nieces have put Sarah Kate in a laundry basket and pulled her around with living room with a dog leash. She loved it.

She is also getting tired of baby food and toys!! We can barely keep up with her these days. We've started doing toast with jelly at breakfast and she loves that. She also loves, loves, loves spaghetti (not the baby food kind!). I've been trying to figure out what to feed her. You would think I would remember what Ali used to eat, but I don't.

Anthony is so cute!! He has the sweetest smile.

Kids love cardboard boxes and they are free! Cute pics. Love the hat.

don't those bags say on them "not intended for children's use" :) hehe when i was little i liked sitting in the laundry basket...and then my brothers got the idea to use it as a sled! just wait till he gets older!! :)

Won't it be nice, though, when you don't have to worry about baby food anymore and you can just give him a little bit of what you're eating?

He looks cute in his new hat.

Love the hat.
Hannahs the same way. If its not a toy its all the more appealing!

I love that video, looks so old fashioned. Hey, where did you get your gate for Tony? Sarah needs something similar.
