Buddy has a way of keeping life interesting. I find it fun and refreshing to view life through the eyes of a little child where every moment holds wonder and adventure.
Yesterday he discovered his shadow for the first time. At first he seemed intrigued by this little thing that kept following him, but that changed to annoyance when he couldn't get it to stop. I don't know how to explain shadows to a 16 month old other than pointing out everyone's shadows and acting all happy about them.
He is at the stage where he wants to know what everything is. One of his favorite activities is pointing at things and saying "iss ess" , his Pennsylvania Dutch way of asking "What is that?"
He loves finding odd little places to climb into. He recently discovered he can open the door to my big pantry cupboard and by removing a few items he fits inside quite nicely. I found him there last evening enjoying a few pretzels before bedtime.
