The messy life of Peanut

Peanut is 10 months old. She can walk now and we are very excited. She still prefers to crawl. It is still the quickest way to travel the house, but more and more she stands and takes a few steps to where she wants to go.

Peanut is 10 months old. She loves to make messes with her new found skills of mobility. I have a little table next to my rocking chair. On it sits my scriptures, a magazine, usually a pen, any little project I might be working on, and often the kids will set their stuff on the little table too. Peanut comes up to the table, stands along side it and begins to pull everything off of it. More often than not, the table stands empty and a pile of stuff lies at it's foot. Peanut also loves the video case. She opens it up and starts to pull everything out of it. Lately she not only pulls things out, but she flings them too. I'm going to share a picture of Peanut in action.

Do you see the mess at her feet? The movies, the DVDs, the papers pulled from the inside of the desk. Do you see the white bucket right next to her? It has her toys in it. There is sits, full of toys. And there is our DVD case, being emptied by small hands. There in the middle is the mess maker.

She is so cute!

That picture is so funny! What a messy girl - who needs toys when you have DVDs, papers, and Mom's stuff to go through??

Emilie used to pull out the dvds too, and that was not really a big deal.....until she started opening the dvds and rearranging them. We would go to find one movie and have to go on a hunt through many dvd cases before we would find the one we wanted.......now we have baby proofed the drawers!! Thank you to kid proof products! ;)
