1.Â We took Bean to the local farmer’s market this weekend.Â It was a beautiful morning and we needed fresh fruits and veggies for the week.Â We go pretty often and I love it.Â But it’s always so crowded and I find myself running over people’s ankles all the time with my stroller. So this time, we left the stroller in the car and let Bean walk on his own. He loved it and millions of people’s ankles were saved.
2. While we were at the farmer’s market, we bought banana chips and dried apricots for Bean to snack on. He’d never had dried fruit before and he thought it was great. He carried it around and chewed on it all morning. I think he felt like a big dude.
3. Bean also had his first ice cream cone. He’s not a stranger to ice cream, but it was his first cone. He didn’t really understand the whole licking concept. It took him a few tries to get it down. It was pretty entertaining watching Chris try to teach Bean how to lick an ice cream cone…
4. I keep finding little scenes that Bean has created with his toys while he’s playing. Every time I come across one, I giggle. I see Bean using more and more of his imagination these days and these little play scenarios with his toys only confirm that. He loves to walk around his toys and stuffed animals making them talk or sing and lately I’ve seen him using two toys or stuffed animals to talk to each other. Of course, the “talking” doesn’t really involve words, per se. But he’s definitely making them attempt at conversations. I love to see him learning and growing and each time I see one of these little play scenes, I get even more proud of him.
