where's the fire?
Over the weekend, we bought Jesse a little firetruck. It's a pretty cool toy. There's a hose up front that blows bubbles. There are all kinds of other nifty little buttons - one plays nursery rhymes, another switches on the signal lights, yet another switches on the siren. There's even a walkie-talkie thingy there that records and plays back your own voice. And it comes with a bona fide fireman helmet too!
And whaddya know, turns out the boy liked the helmet best. *sigh*
Actually, we didn't just buy the firetruck on a whim (though Mae think I'm really buying this for myself). Jesse just turned 10 months old yesterday, and from the looks of things it doesn't seem like he's gonna be walking anytime soon. He used to try walking whenever we lifted him up on his feet, but these days he'd just sit back down. So we thought we'd give him a little encouragement. Apparently, ride-on toys help. Kids get on and they're motivated to go places (for some reason, kids have places they want to go), hence they walk!
But I think Jesse's a lost cause here. His favourite activity for the last few days has been turning and flipping his helmet on the ground and crawling after it. Hehhh!
Oh well, at least we'll be entertained by his monkey antics. :)
