Grandma Clarks Rocker

Last weekend Noah was the lucky recipient of a passed along treasure. Grandma Clark after giving specific instructions (to me), passed along a family heirloom to Noah. A Rocker! This is no ordinary rocker; this thing has seen the years pass by, and numerous children. From what I believe this was my late grandma Winslow's rocker when she was a little one, and then went through mom and her sisters, Uncle Toms kids, and now onto Mr. Noah. What a blessing and honor to receive such a gift.

We thought Noah was ready for a chair of his own; he's been climbing on everything for several weeks now, and working his little way into the love sac and onto the couch. So, I casually mentioned this to mom, and Habra-cadabra and a trip to the shed, magically turned up "The Rocker". We set it in the living room and Noah immediately circled it, sizing up his prey, then climbed in, turned around, sat perfectly centered, and began to rock! And I'm saying he did it like a mouse to cheese, he was instantly rocking away, acting so casual as though he had been doing it for years!

Amazing he is, just amazing!

So now Noah has his chair, excuse me his "Rocker" and he uses it everyday. Although he, being the brave little Ape that he is, has decided he will stand up in it and giggle! It's so hard to get onto him sometimes for his antics; He seemingly has not a thought of danger or pain, just how far he can climb, how far he can walk and on and on....

Who needs toys?

It's a Hot Rod! It's a stepping stool! Nope-it's just a diaper box!

That's the case in our home as Noah has learned that used diaper boxes are the equivalent of the nicest ride on hardwood! Who would of thought a diaper box could be such a luxury ride? Only Noah, that's who!

Our little man has taken to being pulled around in a used diaper box from one end of the house to the other, then back again. He sits patiently and awaits his chariots steward before zooming off once again, curly hair blowing in the wind as he waves to the onlookers during his joyride! Its truly a joy setting back and watching the spectacle, the enjoyment and the pure happiness he shows in doing the simplest of things. The only downfall, you guessed it, someone has to pull him along! But what's a little effort compared to such a big smile on his face?

Got Boredom , Find a Diaper Box!

How about a Diaper Box Hat?

For the record. As of yesterday, Noah has a "real" Hot Rod!

And he Loves it!
