Goody Goody Gumballs!

Piper has a new favorite toy!  Not only does she get to stare at the big face looking at her (and give it kisses, too, of course), but she gets to practice her sitting skills, fine motor skills, and cause-and-effect thinking skills.

Her new gumball machine's "gumballs" are balls with different things inside each.  They sparkle, rattle, and twist, and are so much fun!  When you push the lever, its face lights up and it sings a little song.  Then a ball falls out the front.  She wasn't too sure what to do with it at first, but with a little practice, has figured out what she needs to do for it to sing to her.  She'll reach for the lever, push it down, and then let it go (which, oddly, is sometimes the hardest step to remember!).

It's so fun to see her playing with "big kid" toys now.  And she definitely enjoys herself!

Check out her enthusiasm!
