Ode to "the boinger"

Isaac is quite mobile. I wasn't really prepared for this when he started to pull himself up to stand at 6 1/2 months, crawling like crazy at 7 months and now really trying to walk at 8 months. Oh boy. We have a mover and a shaker on our hands.

So with this new found mobility, Isaac is discovering things all over his room that produce fascinating sounds, interesting functions and a strange gravitational pull towards his dirty diaper bin.

One of his new fascinations is the door. He loves to close the door and play with the hinge. Play is too technical of a word. He mainly likes to touch it. I'm sure his sponge-like brain is thinking, "What the flip is this thing? What does it do? How can I get it into my mouth?"
And then there is the doorstop, or better known around our house as "the boinger". It's called "the boinger" because it makes a boooiiinnnngggg sound and vibrates like crazy, two things that create a world of wonder for a little kid. He sits there and plays with that thing like it's going out of style. Don't worry dear friends, we took the white plastic cover off of the tip so he won't swallow that part. We are smart like that.

The thing about the boinger is the fact that it is sticking out of the wall, which provides a brilliant opportunity for him to try to chew on it. The stunner is that he responds to his name quite well, so when we say, "Isaac, that's not for babies" he turns away and leaves it. Brilliant, I tell you...brilliant!!
