We have reached the whirling dervish stage of babyhood. This kid is in to everything: if it can be knocked over, pulled out, and generally mussed up, he's right there and ready to get that party started. He is one very busy little manchild.
To buy ourselves a little peace and quiet, we've taken to putting him in his highchair with a tray full of dishsoap suds scooped from the sink. If we keep sending fresh bubbles his way, it'll keep him occupied for about a half hour; a baby eternity.
He did try a tiny taste of bubbles the first time, but has sworn off them ever since.
(my favorite part: clean-up is a piece of cake. By the time he's done, the bubbles are just a little puddle and I only have to dry the tray off with a towel.)
Anybody else have some good tricks for keeping little hands occupied? I wanna hear 'em!
