New Toy!

So Brad’s brother and his girlfriend visited us for a few days from last Saturday until Wednesday afternoon. It was wonderful to have people in the house during the day!!! They have been in Vancouver for the last 8 months and are off to Rome for four and then to Dublin for another four – so this was the first and last time they’ll see Gwen for a while!

Well, when they arrived, Gwen couldn’t really hold anything in her hand. If you wrapped her hand around something, she’d hold it for maybe a few seconds. Now?

She’s hanging onto stuff and putting it in her mouth. Crazy!! The toy above is a present from Dave and Lindsey and is a coloringo by Schaff (Germany). Gwen loves the colours and the feel – we love that it’s all-natural and non-toxic – and who am I kidding, I love the colours, too!! It even makes a rattle-y noise when you shake it. I heart it. They also bought her a set of BRIO building blocks, and they are beautiful! Although judging by how much Dave played with them while he was here, I think he bought them so he could play with them!!!

This was Gwen this morning when I was getting us ready to leave for our LLL meeting. She totally reached out and grabbed onto the zipper pull on my bag. Three times. She’s getting so smart!!

  1. *sigh* I love those toys. I totally forgot about BRIO building blocks, we had similar ones when I was a kid.

    Yay for getting older and learning!

    LOL Jen!!

    Ryanne – my BIL and his g/f are going to school for architecture, so the blocks are fitting!! I was looking at some of the other Schaff toys and they’re sooooo nice!!
