He is also an excellent little helper with other things, like emptying the dishwasher. He helps me every day. Not something I started intentionally, he just comes everywhere with me and is interested in everything I do and one day grabbed a spoon and handed to me and that was that. He is SO proud of himself and it is so cute. Just another reminder that I am being very closely watched and teaching through it whether I like it or not!
He also helps hand me with laundry and puts things away in drawers. And loves to play with the knobs on the washing machine. He is definitely a little boy and is in the "I must find out how everything works" stage.
Don't let those things fool you completely though. He is a one-year old boy and generally leaves a trail like this behind him:
I embrace these ordinary things in my day and treasure these moments. They are already going by quickly, as my little boy is growing and growing.
