No more single digits in this household. My little guy just hit the big time, double digits.
He is still small enough to be super excited about his birthday, his gifts, playing with his gifts, and getting phone calls from his friends and relations. I know we don't have too much longer, so I am savoring the last little bit of birthday magic.
Speaking of birthday magic... This set of paper toys.
Based on a wildly-popular computer game, but taking it back to paper-doll and origami basics with figures that you cut and fold. A complete reversal of high tech and old school.
Competely entrancing, too, in a way that I wouldn't have thought possible for something that doesn't involve a screen.
