Forrest got his first bike! A balance bike of course. He took it for a slow ride to the park and back for its maiden voyage. He also did some work on it, you know, whatever you do with a wrench. I hope by the time he's biking to school by himself all the streets of Cambridge will have dedicated bike lanes!

Forrest became obsessed with boating on this trip to New Hampshire, specifically with a certain kayak paddle. Which meant anytime he was in the boat, we couldn't really go anywhere (until we found another paddle). Lotus was not so enthusiastic about the boating but she preferred that to being left behind on shore.

Visiting Great Grandma Gusta! Forrest's favorite thing about the visit was running up and down the long hallways and stairs. Another good thing is people there don't exactly have the sharpest hearing so Forrest's shouting (hopefully) doesn't bother them as much!
On our trip to New Hampshire Forrest became a pro at boating. At first he was very nervous to get in the boat but once we convinced him to try the rowboat (not pictured) he became obsessed with boating. Now every time he sees water he wants to sit in it and pretend to row!
Forrest discovers where blueberries come from! They're everywhere you turn, it's like a dream come true! Until he discovered the ride-on airplane they had at the farm, that was the real dream come true. But the rest of us stocked up on fresh blueberries while Forrest played.

Forrest is 2! He had his traditional birthday watermelon and ate waaay more of it than he did last year.

These bathtub crayons are one of the best purchases we've made. They provide endless minutes of entertainment in the evening while we're trying to make it through to bed time. Forrest knows the limited repertoire of things we can draw and he will make requests until he decides to take on the job himself.
Forrest's preferred method for getting rid of sticky fingers. Luckily it's Lotus's preferred method as well. Though while he's eating he doesn't always want Lotus there bugging him and has learned how to tell her to go away. Unfortunately Lotus hasn't learned to understand words yet.
