The last week has been just comical at our house. Camden is fully walking now and has no inhibition as to what he tries to do (I blame it on the helmet--he's truly fearless). He is also discovering so many new things, and it's just fun to watch. We're learning from our mistakes, however. Here are a few of them:
Good Idea: inviting friends over to play.
Bad Idea: drinking bug infested, 3-day-old pool water.
Good Idea: Teaching Cam to like the slide.
Bad Idea: letting him try going down head first--now it's all he wants.
Good idea: Letting Cam learn to play on his own when mommy needs to get things done.
Bad idea: leaving the tissue box within his reach.
Good Idea: using the stroller as a pack n' play while i make dinner...
Bad idea: now whenever he sees the stroller he wants to get it out and push.
Good Idea: letting Cam help me cook.
Bad Idea: letting him get addicted to playing with spices...and watching them spill on the floor.
Good Idea: Teaching Cam to love music and the piano.
Bad Idea: Letting Cam do it on his own. Now he'll never let us help.
Sticky fingers + piano keys = horrified Mom and Dad
It's been fun to watch him learn. He's growing up really fast. He has more of a little personality every day.
