...whee! Today Adair was sitting on a quilt on the floor at my SIL's. She found a penny, and put it in her mouth. I saw (thank goodness!) and fished it out. Turned around to put it on the table behind me, and when I turned back, she was chewing on a piece of broken plastic. ?! Took THAT away, said "WHERE THE HECK ARE YOU FINDING THIS STUFF?!" checked all around the quilt she was sitting on, figured maybe they'd been under the couch or something, didn't see anything else, relaxed. About half an hour later, my niece started complaining about her eye, which was running. Took a sec to take a look at it, and when I turned back around, Adair was chewing on the business end of a neon green marker. Neon green tongue, lips, cheeks. Thank god they make these things nontoxic, right? Took THAT away, washed out her mouth (fun) and hands/face. About an hour later, SIL comes home. We start chatting. SIL says "What is she eating?" ...look down, Addy is sitting in my lap in the process of eating a nickel. ARE YOU KIDDING ME???

That's it. Where do you find baby-sized hamster bubbles?

When DS1 was about this age he would be playing in the backyard, with us right there. He would slyly turn his head and body so we couldn't see his face and pop an acorn in. They are sneaky and can find the smallest things. They really have eagle eyes for anything little nearby.

LMAO! Alice is a mouth baby too. Don't stress too much, most of the time I've watched her put something in her mouth just to spit it right back out.

They find everything. Don't know if you have a problem with stinkbugs in your area or not, but I found a stinkbug in his mouth the other day. Not sure if it was alive or dead when he first put it in there, but it was gross. His breath smelled like stinkbug for a bit afterwards too!

ROFLROFL That's funny!!! I feel the same way sometimes. Hailey does that too. We can sweep, vaccum and yet the little monkey STILL finds things to put in her mouth and chew on and most of the time we have NO idea where it's all come from! The only time we don't say too much is when she decides to sneak the dogs raw hide bone and chew on it, the dog sits there with this look on her face as if to say uhh that's mine lol

Dude, seriously, Ainsley is so bad at this. I can't believe she's already sneakier and more destructive than Aidan. Didn't see that one coming. They do make funny stories for when they're older, though. Blum 3 I'm with Kelly, I know most times it goes in Ainsley's mouth and comes right out. I know it sounds crazy, but I think BLW helped with that.

That's pretty much my all day, everyday. With 4 year old toys around, he finds so many little things. Acorns and sticks are his favorite outside items. I'm surprised he isn't sick more often with my fingers in his mouth all day.

Yes, I actually think the same thing. She is SO GOOD at knowing what she can and cannot handle, swallowing-wise, and it does make me feel a little less freaked about choking. Still...not real happy with dirty money and broken plastic in there. But what can you do?! If there is a tiny piece of thread or scrap of paper on the floor right next to a toy...guess which she goes for.

That's funny! I tried to give Finn a piece of chocolate bunny last night and he would NOT eat it. Kept turning his head and when I gave him a piece to play with, he just turned it around in his hands. BUT, that piece of small whatever in the floor? LOVES it!

Becca finds all kinds of stuff to try to eat with two older sisters who are into lots of crafts. She is always finding beads and pom poms. THe cats bat those around the house, so even if the girls are good about keeping them out of Becca's domain, the cats bring them in. She is mainly in only two rooms downstairs to make life easier.
