What to do on a Rainy Day?

This has been a rainy week and I have tried to be creative with things to do with Andrew. Yesterday I got out the playdough, little cookie cutters and a toy rolling pin. We had fun making "sugar cookies." Then Andrew, in true boy fashion, had to take the cookies and build a tower. Then we rolled each cookie into a little ball.
Another thing I did this week that ended up keeping him occupied was I moved all of our dining room and kitchen chairs into the living room so I could do a thorough sweep and mop. I did not expect this to entertain him, but he really enjoyed climbing and hiding in the chairs.

Josiah's New Skills

It has been fun to watch Josiah grow and want to do more and more. He is following in his brother's footsteps and loves to jump. Even when we are holding him he will arch his back so that you stand him up. He loves to be in the jumper and the exersaucer, which works great for when we are eating meals. Josiah has also found his thumb and has fallen in love. Now when I go to get him from his naps I find him with his thumb in his mouth. I was finally able to get a picture of him doing it.
