New Toy!

Kate got a new toy in the mail Wednesday and she absolutely loves it!  Thank you Lily and Sophia for our new Laughing house!

Kate has been exploring the house since we put it together!  Her current obsession is playing peekaboo through the window and checking the mail!  Speaking of mail, we have gotten some very sweet notes in the mail over the past week!  Alex and I are continually blown away by the level of support we are receiving during this hard time.

This is my favorite toy so far!  I love how interactive it is and how it will grow with Kate.  There are so many features she hasn't discovered yet and I can't wait to watch her learn and understand how to do more and more!  My mom has one at her house so Kate played with it when we were in Florida.  It's amazing the difference a few weeks can make though because she understands even more now that she did when we were visiting!

An added bonus is that it is all plastic and will be SO easy to keep clean when Kate comes home from the hospital.  We will have to sanitize all of her toys every night so I am starting to phase out a lot of her plush toys that have to be washed and then dry.  Things that can be wiped down quickly are going to make the nightly cleaning ritual go much quicker!

If anyone is wondering, it is the Fisher Price Learning House.

I would highly recommend this to anyone with a baby that is crawling and starting to pull up - get it early so your child can enjoy it for a long time!  I find it much sturdier than our music table and feel more comfortable with Kate pulling up and walking around it!

I hope everyone has a good weekend!  Kate and I have been busy all day making Father's Day presents for Alex!  It has been messy loads of fun!

Great toy! ! I am going to have to get one of those for Jack and Braley. I loved the video you posted on facebook.

I am glad she can open the mailbox. Ours was really hard to open (even for an adult) until a month or so ago!
