so jasper has fallen in love with this drum i got her at that consignment sale…it is a leapfrog learning drum that, when you hit it, makes noise, counts, says the alphabet and generally drives jon crazy…it is, in fact, outlawed from being played in his presence…i was WARNED 🙂

she really seems to like pounding on it and the neat thing is that it doesn’t matter where you hit it (on the bottom, side, edge or top), it still does what it is supposed to…which is good cuz she rarely hits it on the top…so there you go, a noise making, battery eating toy that i am glad i got for her…you can say i told you so…

before i was even pregnant, arnetta gave jon his tiny little silver belled thai anklet that he wore when he was a wee one in thailand…we put it on her the other day and, lo and behold, it fit!! so it is her bit of bling…i took the bell off cuz it was only hanging on by a thin wire and, well, that was a bell waiting to be swallowed…but the anklet looks very cool on her and i really get a kick out of seeing it on her and knowing that jon wore it when he was that size too…circles within circles…life is good…

we got her these most awesome leather sandals – now, i know not everyone will appreciate these, but trust me when i say these are COOL!! they are from 6 to 12 months and very big on her so they should last quite a while…i am unsure how the white will stand up but it isn’t like she will be walking in any mud puddles so we are good for now 😉

oh, and this sieve (also from arnetta) has got to be one of the most useful kitchen utensils i never realized i needed…i use it mainly to mash her baby food and i have decided that it is retro in the best possible way…thanks, arnetta!!
