Good thing for fluffy diapers!

Can you guess his new skill? Hehe
To match his new "mature" skills, we invested in some new toys for Thomas. I had been hunting for a cruising toy courtesy of Fisher Price ... but the thought of spending $75 on this obnoxious looking (albeit interactive, fun, DAP, whatever ... for babies) toy, in addition to shipping and handling, and then trying to figure out where to put it ... only for him to outgrow it at a moment's notice (much like the jumparoo? <sigh> almost time to put that one away!) ... was really repulsive ... after receiving a gift card to Target from his Gramma and Grampa Haws, we were able to invest in some new toys from a brand that I am quickly falling in love with - B. toys! They are carried at Target, as well as other retailers ... I love the colors, the wood, the design ... and Thomas does, too! He is totally enthralled with the "bath toy" ship, captain, fish and life preserver ... he loves to open and close the door on top of the ship, and loved playing with the stacking-straining cups in the bath last night. He likes the noisy 'funKEY' chain, as well - it makes noise with out vomitting out the ABCs and 123s, has real metal keys (mmm so cool and soothing to those teething spots), and sort of matches Mommy's keys ... cool, huh?
Additionally ... we've named the captain ... Curly Jefferson ...
