Of Rubber Duckies and Wireless Keyboards

Zeke's current favorite toy is our spare wireless keyboard. He will spend quite some time happily pecking away (well...more like banging away) at it, occasionally looking up to grin at us.

Like many babies I've heard of, it seems our child couldn't care less about many of the special baby toys, and instead prefers to play with technology and other regular household items. Along with his favorite keyboard, he also likes the wireless mouse and mousepad. Other current favorites include a rinsed out yogurt carton, a spatula, a mesh strainer, and the blue tarp underneath Daddy's easel. He's also a big fan of empty plastic bottles. When I'm working in the kitchen, I'll put him down on the floor with an empty juice bottle to play with and we're good to go for 15 minutes.

I'm glad I followed the advice of more experienced mamas and didn't spend much money on the isles of baby toys at Babies R Us. The normal stuff of life is all we need! Just hand the kid a spatula.

Curiously, he does seem to have a thing for rubber duckies, though.
