Last Wednesday Peter received a birthday card in the mail from my grandmother, Renate.
As per usual, Renate included balloons in the card, which I blew up right away for Peter to play with. Knowing that babies and balloons don't always go well together (they bite balloon, the pop scares them, they inhale with fright, balloon rubber chokes them...) we watched Peter very carefully.
Despite the hazzard, Peter absolutely LOVED the balloons! He batted them around the house for 10 minutes, having the most fun when they would bounce back at him off the wall. Eventually he did pop them both by pushing them into the ground, but it was fun while it lasted!
