a birthday, scarves, and baskets

February 27, 2012

We finally had a little party for Lucas. He’s not much of a food eater. He didn’t even try a cupcake. He did smoosh it with his hand though.  He was thrilled with his little new toys and everyone cheering him on. He was all smiles.  Lucas isn’t too hard to please usually. I hope that personality trait sticks around.  Whenever he starts getting cranky, I can just take him up to his room for a little quiet play time. He will happily play on top of me or toddle around in his space.   We all kind of gravitate to his room. It’s a nice, sunny place on most days.  There’s also pretty things to look at.

We all love the scarf wall.  I made it in about a half hour one day and surprisingly it has held up.  Lucas sits under it and flaps all the scarfs around or pulls one down for peek-a-boo. Keely takes them and ties them around herself for dress-up costumes. Milo uses them for nature scenes (water, grass) and he makes a “machine” with all the clips as buttons and gears. The machine can make all sorts of things. I think it’s just pretty to look at.

One of Lucas’ favorite things is these small lidded baskets.  I always put little things in them and it is usually the first thing he goes to in his room.

I could barely take a picture of the baskets because he won’t leave them alone. Take the lid off, put it back on.  Take out the toys, put them back in. Eat the basket, throw the basket.  He just loves them.  If you have a little one, I highly recommend finding yourself some.

Maybe I’ll do a little photo room tour of his space if anyone is interested.

    He is just so sweet. I love the baskets, too. Of course I am interested in a room tour (nosy). But I should point out that your silks are not in rainbow order. That wouldn’t fly in my house… ;)

    Katurah! I’m nosy too.
    Yep, I used to put them in order but the children take them down so much and put them back differently every time. We had them arranged in kinda hues last week. :)

    I love these baskets!–where did you get them? Such a great way to organize and keep the little one entertained. My little girls favorite toy is this bowl with a lid on it…out of all her toys she chooses that?!?! haha

    I love your clouds and scarves! My MIL has those same little wicker boxes and you’re right, those are the first things my 18 month old goes to in her house. Definitely have to find some for around here.
