Like Wyatt, Ruslan also asked for bongo drums for Christmas. He likes drums as well but I was surprised that he kept asking for them. Santa brought him the same drums as Wyatt and although he was happy when he opened them, he set them aside and opened more presents. I steered him toward . . . → Read More: It’s All About the Cars
Wyatt was home today with a fever and upset stomach. He started to feel better mid-morning although he was very tired and clingy. We keep some toys in closed storage – I opened some of those bins this morning to entertain him.

They eventually decided that the toy might be fun to play with as well.
Isn’t the penguin cute? It is one of those toys with the weighted bottom so when the boys knock it down, it pops back up. It also plays music when you hit it. Ruslan loves it and it was one of the first toys he carried around the room as he was first starting . . . → Read More: The Scary Happy Penguin
Even though they will be 12 months next week, this post reflects their activities at 11 months.
