first laptop

I've been holding off on getting this for Cole 'cause I didn't want to be that geeky mom, but each time I'm on my laptop it seems so unfair to tease him with the key tapping noises that make it seem like a big toy. However, when I thought it was harmless to let him play with my keyboard, I lost my left shift key. Those little fingers sure do get in there quite easily! Auntie Winn learned this lesson the hard way when she chose not to heed my warning when we were in the Bay Area for a visit. At first, she thought it was the cutest thing to watch Cole type away on her laptop until she lost the enter key.

Now that he's a lot more curious and determined to reach out for the things he wants (read: my things), I arrived home with his first laptop.

He couldn't contain his excitement with his first keystrokes. His reaction ranks up there with the best so far. He couldn't even use his "words" and just kept humming "mmm, mmm, mmm". Occasionally he'd stop and just give a big toothy grin. Adorable!

I'm sure if there was an internet for babies he'd have blogged, tweeted, and updated his status about his new device before bedtime.

We bought the Leaptop for Max too. He loves the feature where it will sing his name. I'm sure Cole will be blogging, tweeting, and surfing in no time. Our Macs have somehow survived the prying fingers, but my uncle lost his "R" and "D" keys which makes it hard for me to log in to his computer to check my email. Miss you!

A friend of ours gave us Scout a few months ago and he's been Cole's best friend. I catch myself reciting his sayings and singing his songs throughout the day. d'oh. Miss you too!
