playtime!

Noah has gotten quite choosy lately! He is really learning how to express his emotions to us, and promptly let's us know when he likes/dislikes something. He is also definitely developing favorites...favorite people, favorite foods, and favorite playtime activities! Here are a few of his favorite toys and activities at the moment...

Noah has loved to "read" from the very beginning. That was something I particularly wanted him to develop..a love for books. I think I'm on the right path! He is perfectly content to look at them, turn the pages, and of course, chew on them! This particular book is called Squishy Turtle and Friends. It is by priddy books. I am really a fan of their things, and Noah seems to be also!


This toy was a Christmas gift. It is the LeapFrog Spin & Sing Alphabet Zoo. He LOVES this toy! He picked up how to spin it months ago, but he still really enjoys this one. He especially likes the animal names & sounds setting!


Noah has only had this toy for a few weeks, but it is quickly becoming a favorite as well! It is the Fisher Price Brilliant Basics Baby's First Blocks. He really likes feeling the different shapes of the blocks..with his hands AND his mouth! LOL:) He hasn't reached the sorting stage yet, but that will come soon enough.


Noah also has a Fisher Price Learning Puppy that he really loves as well. I just didn't catch a picture of that one. That toy has LOTS of different activities, but Noah especially likes the different songs it sings - "If You're Happy & You Know It" and "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes" are his favorites:)

BUT.....this is BY FAR Noah's very favorite toy of all! It is his Evenflo ExcerSaucer. He would play in this for hours if I let him! I love it because he doesn't need me to help him play in it, so I'm able to eat, do laundry, or whatever with both hands free. He loves it because there are a TON of different things to see, do, mash, pull, chew, spin...it really does it all! We're already on our second set of batteries!


It has also been great for Noah's physical development because he gets lots of stand-up practice. He is able to spin himself around too, so I think he will be an early walker...he already is pulling up on things!

Another neat thing about the ExerSaucer is that most of the toys are interchangeable, meaning that if one breaks or there is one that he doesn't really care for, we just switch it out for a new one. They call them "switcheroos." The little "crinkle bee" is newest switcheroo that's been added. 


Overall, Noah is such an active guy. He just plays and plays and plays! Yep...whenever it's playtime, you'll find one happy little Noah here:)


cherish the *little moments*
