Its official!

Well folks, its official



We have a walker!

Heaven help me! I've already found her on the computer table, and on the kitchen table eating ginger bread houses!

Time to pull out the play pen!

*and the bottle of pills in her hands?? I took an old bottle and put candy in it, because she likes to shake it. Its what I do to keep her still while doing her hair! A homemade rattle!
** Oh thank you, my anonymous friend! I didn't even think about her associating pill bottles with candy! Although she doesn't eat it, she just shakes it. I never take the lid off. I need to find a different bottle that makes great noise! It really has been 9 years since I had a toddler! Sheesh!

Please be careful with the candy in the medicine bottle.. She will figure out how to open it... I did when I was 3 and ate almost an entire bottle of children's aspirin... I use to let my son play with them too until my Mom reminded me what happened when I was little.. She may think that all medicine bottles have candy in them... :)

Anthony loves to put things in and out. So, we use clear plastic containers with fold-up lids (like parmesan containers) filled with stuff he can put in/out. You could use a container like a clean peanut butter one with a lid that doesn't fold open, and put rattly things in it...
I can tell Arina's going to be in a lot of things like Anthony is. He loves the top of the table, entertainment center, the tops of the couches, and other places to climb. We bought several baby gates on craigslist so he can't go up our steep, wood stairs (old house), or go in the kitchen then out the dog door or dumping out the dog water.
At least they're cute when they're getting into this mischief, right?! :)

Look at her go! She looks so grown up! Hasn’t it really been that long since I’ve seen her? She just gets cuter and cuter!

Oh my, those boots are too precious! Yay for walking!! She has just blossomed in your family. A totally different girl from when you first got her.:-)
My kids like "shakers" as well. Try an empty Parmesan cheese container. They make awesome noise shakers when filled with dried beans! I always tape the top well just in case.

watch out momma, she's on the move! Love the skirt.

I was trying to think of an alternative to a pill bottle for you but the only thing I could come up with is a plastic water/soda bottle but it might be too big for her little hands unless you have one of those tiny versions.

Such a darling little girl.

I had to chuckle about you finding her in other places now that she's fully mobile, she's a stinker!

We have a host of baby bottles, I think they're .. by the pump company that uses yellow as their primary color? Wow I'm so helpful. They're the thin tallish ones that only hold like an oz or possibly 2. They're clear with yellow covers. The covers go on TIGHT. We put random things in those to shake and to look at and move around and all of that good fun sensory stuff.

She is so sweet and so cute and I LOVE the boots!

Colleen said...

YAY for walking! You're going to be one busy Mama!

Heather said...

Arina-rina!! She's so adorable, Lacey - could a child be more perfect? (I know you think that about all of your kids, but she's your only girl and omg is she precious?!) Now that she's walking, you know what comes next...DANCE!
