Scoot n' Scoop (9 months to over 3 years)

I thought that our lives were pretty interesting with all the progress and milestones that Kyle has hit recently, then I saw this. Well, even though we didn't meet the president, we had an exciting evening here in Utah.

Kyle has been pulling himself up on things and walking along them. He also walks if you hold his hands. Someone much smarter than I am suggested we get a walking toy. Someone else, also much smarter than I, suggested we get a toy that he can walk with now and ride later when he is older. Hence, the new Tonka scoot n' scoop. They can push it until they walk, then walk with it, and finally ride it. It also scoops up these little shapes that match to holes on the seat.

This was Kyle's first inclination last night...


Then we helped him up on it. It is hard to pull up when the car keeps moving away...


This is the video of the first steps with the new toy...we were so sure he would fall and not walk...

We also have found that Kyle loves Evan's guitar and will play it...

The pediatrician told us to try to get Kyle to transfer some of his attachment to a new object. We choose the pink monkey to do that with. It's now his "loves." Monkey goes everywhere. He also loves to crawl over and lay on it when I'm busy and can't pick him up or he'll suck on the tail while sucking his thumb. He loves it against his face obviously.
