Yesterday I was tempted to put a new toy, say some stacking blocks, on the shopping list for Gray since he is sitting up well on his own now. Then I observe Noah with a couple sticks he found out in the yard and has been carrying around all day, and Carter with a drinking straw taped to a couple Legos… suddenly I am reminded of mothering those two previous 6-month-olds. I open the utensil drawer and hand Gray the measuring cups and a little plastic dish. His new favorite toys.
