Children's Museum

Today Jake and I had to get out of the house so I took him to the Portland Children's Museum for the first time. He loved it! There was lots to explore there, however, once he caught sight of the waterworks, he wasn't interested in anything else. I showed him other parts of the museum and he briefly played, but always ended up signing "bath" meaning he wanted to go back to the waterworks.

Signing "duck" at the waterworks.

Exploring a "log" in the baby garden (which is for children 2 and younger, but interested him the least of any part of the museum!)

Driving the ambulance in the health section.
Back to the waterworks.

So in the end he spent about 30 minutes at the waterworks and got himself almost completely wet despite having a water apron on. I didn't think to bring a change of clothes so he rode home wearing his fleece coat, diaper, and socks, and with mama's coat on him to keep him warm! He fell asleep on the way home, worn out from the excitement of playing with the water.

P.S. Today I noticed for the first time that one of Jake's top canine teeth has already poked through, I was so surprised to see that! The other top one looks like it's getting ready to come out soon, too. It won't be long before he has a full set of teeth. Amazing.
