Forrest learned how to throw sticks for Rayna! Sometimes he forgets to actually throw it and just puts it in her mouth but it's a fun game for everyone. Of all the dogs in Forrest's life, Rayna is by far the most patient and pettable.

Forrest is 15 months old! He's 26 pounds, which is just about the 90th percentile. He's bigger than some 2-year-olds, but still not quite as well-balanced as they are. He sure knows how to keep busy, bopping around the house banging and climbing things. He's just started to be interested in books so that's a whole new world for him. He still just has the 8 teeth but I'm sure that will change soon. He's a bit of a picky eater, there are probably about 10 foods he will reliably eat. His favorite is fruit, but beyond that he's pretty into avocado and cheese, and specific types of tofu and rice. There are way more things that make him laugh then ever before, so aside from the tantrums and biting that comes with the toddler territory, we're having a pretty good time these days!

I haven't had as much to post on the blog lately because it's getting harder to take pictures of Forrest. He's either running around and climbing things so there isn't time to get my phone out, or the rest of the time he's doing this, and we don't really need more than one whiny shot.

We borrowed a good baby hiking backpack for our trip to New Hampshire, and this was us trying it out before we left. Forrest had fun in there, but no matter how well it might distribute the weight, it still feels like you're carrying around a 25+ pound sack of potatoes. So, going up hills was a bit of a workout. Especially for dad when we started handing Forrest some shiny rocks to keep him entertained.
Forrest has been exploring Lotus's crate recently. Most of the time he just drops things in through the bars, and opens and closes the door. But sometimes when he's feeling brave, he ventures inside. This time I decided to join him. Suffice it to say it was cozy in there! Lotus was a very polite hostess, making us feel quite welcome even though we may not have been her first choice of houseguests.
