Asher at 10 months is very busy busy busy:-) He loves exploring the cupboards in the kitchen...taking out bowls and canteens. Oh, so much fun! I must get a picture next time when he's in the dishwasher! He get's so very excited when he sees the dishwasher door open! Oh, how he crawls over so quickly! Tee hee, it's actually quite entertaining to watch him light up when we're doing our usual thing of cooking and cleaning up.
I'm very relaxed about Asher exploring his environment. Almost nothing is off limits because I'm right there next to him. Well, nothing super sharp and dangerous or toxic like that, but you know what I mean;-) I don't limit him to "baby toys". He actually don't have much "toys". I've noticed that children, even babies, prefer real life objects over plastic pretend toys.
He's learning so much about his environment and about relationships... This is a perfect time to exchange things with them and play "please" and "thank you". He loves to hand over things to me and delights in the interaction so very much.
