In September, Abraham turned 2 years old. It's about time I posted these pictures.
We were out of town on his day, and I just gave him a few small tractors. He loves tractors and construction vehicles -- really almost anything with wheels is of interest, but he especially likes big construction machines and tractors or mowers.
We had a small celebration later in the month. He got some more vehicle-related gifts. And he got this guitar (technically it may be a ukulele, b/c it only has 4 strings, but for him it serves as a guitar for now) which used to be my brother Dylan's.
He loved the guitar so much, he had trouble putting it down to do anything else. He's been really fascinated by guitars lately because his daddy plays some (and a couple of his siblings have been playing a bit, too).
Trucks and guitars. Two favorite things.
You really had to see him with his guitar to understand his attachment to it for the first little while he had it. It went everywhere with him that was allowed (he wasn't supposed to sleep or eat with it, and if he started being too rough with it I'd take it away also). Here he had fallen asleep in the chair with it. Adorable.
He still really likes it, although he has started experimenting with it now by putting things inside it and even wanting to use it as a step stool. I take it away for the latter and try to encourage him not to do the former (his sister Tirzah has developed a good technique for getting things out of it for him, which is sweet of her). Anyway, when he plays with it, he carries it around and wants to demonstrate his "playing" for everyone. He's also rather possessive of it, I'm afraid. We need to work on sharing. He loves to try to play with a pick, although he also loves to drop the pick inside it. His playing is so cute. I've been meaning to take a video of it. If I do, perhaps I can share it.
