One of Elijah's current favorite toys is a little shopping cart that was Kurt's many years ago. He loves to load it up with whatever he can find and push it around the house. As you can see from the pictures above, anything from newspapers to the Wii remote is fair game. I just love watching him walk around, and he looks so determined when he is putting everything in. Sometimes his baby doll rides up front, but sometimes the doll gets a little buried under all of his other "treasures". When he's done, he "puts it away" by tucking it under the coffee table. The whole exercise is almost too adorable for this mama to take.
Elijah is definitely in the stage of putting things into other things. There's the shopping cart, of course, as well as the trunk of his little car, and any bag that he can find. This is all well and good (and cute), but we do have to keep an eye on him, lest we lose a remote or two for good. The other day, Kurt called me because he had been looking for the thermometer for 15 minutes with no luck. He finally found it...in the watering can. Fortunately, we never water our plants, so the thermometer emerged unscathed. Now, if Elijah would just tell me what happened to my iPod...
