Enjoying my presents

I got some good things on Christmas Day. Books to read and toys to play with and learn with. I've been enjoying playing with all of it this week. Mommy only lets me have some of it at a time so I don't get tired of it all.

Grandpa J got me a great big bag of color balls, and they are fun! Mommy put the gate up in the hallway and closed all the doors so I could just push them all over and they couldn't get away. I played with them for a LONG time!

Here's a little movie of me playing with my color balls too.

I also got some drums to play with in the bath tub, and I figured out how to do them the first time I played with them! Here's another little movie to show you.
(Mommy note: There is a pretty impressive minute in there for us...she "got it" about the drums in a way we didn't expect. Can you tell what it was??)

  1. Aw Braska! My nephew, Noah, got that same big "bag-o-balls" for Christmas and he was pretty excited about them too. He even took them to his playpen and took a nap on top of them:) I will have to post some pics for you on our blog!

  3. Awww, too cute! Did you get a pit for all those balls? (a baby pool works just fine) Kayla has those drums (and the floating xylophone) for the tub and loves them, too!

  7. Hey! WTG, Braska!

    G has those drums too! :)

    We are thinking about getting the balls, but we don't have a hallway to close off like that! Jessica and Joey taught us a trick to put them in the pack and play...maybe we'll try that!

  8. We have a bunch of balls too! One of the best gifts EVER! A fun thing to do with them when the weather is nice, if you have an empty sandbox, I turned one into an outdoor ballpit! It was one of my kiddos favorite things to play with outside!

  11. Mommy is so smart, blocking off the hall for all those balls. Braska, YOU are so smart, knowing how to play those drums right side up. I don't think mommy even caught that you said two words together that you heard her say, before she asked you to repeat one of them, which you did. I think you're hiding some of your "smarts" from them :o) Happy New Year, sweetie peach!
