Favorite Non-toys

We all know that your LO could have a million baby toys but will still go for the 'non-toy' item most of the time. Doesn't it always work that way? So what are some of the favorites? Remote, keys, pet bowl? Lets share.

Anything he can get his hands on, today it's his hair brush, the roomba room divider and some screwed up packing tape. Yesterday it was the cat bowl and some artificial flowers.

Odin loves:

measuring cups
measuring spoons
plastic strawberry baskets
Rings from my canning jars
Hand held orange/lemon juicer
Wooden spoons
Drinking cups
DH's alarm clock
Silky ribbon scraps
Any containers with hinged lids
The hinged lid to DS1's thermos
My hairbrush :confused:
The remote

Though we got a handful of baby toys at baby shower gifts I really only bought 2 wood teethers this time around. I'm so glad I didn't go wild on toys with baby 2 like we did with baby 1.

Can I just say that I love that it's us West Coast girls and the Aussie all up on PG.org late this evening? Yeah, I've been drinking Blum 3

Teagan's favorite non-toy items:
My laptop
Remotes
Anything paper
Boxes of any shape or size
Muffin tins, cooling rack, broiling pan (basically anything I keep on the "baby safe" shelf in the kitchen)
My car keys. Not DH's. Mine has the fob. It sets the car alarm off. She likes that.
Doors
Cat food plate
Cat
Dog bed (ewww)
My calves

Yay for drinking, have one for me. I don't get to drink at all these days because of hubby working stupid hours. It's only mid afternoon here, so not too late for me

It's not even that late here yet (11 pm). I'm just playing with fire staying up later than Teagan. Blum 3 I might even be super crazy and sleep in the same bed as DH tonight. He's been sleeping in Teagan's room this past year or so. It is, after all, our anniversary tomorrow. Maybe Teagan will be nice to her parents and let them sleep in her room ALONE tonight. Yeah right.

What were we talking about?

I 2nd the birthday drink!

Woo Hoo Erin, sleeping in the same bed with DH!!!! That will be a nice early anniversary present!

My Dh is at a poker thing tonight so I'm totally having me time. I'm scared to go up to bed cause Odin can basically smell me coming up the stairs, lol, and I'm not ready for our nightly marathon nurse/sleep.

Remote, cell phones, and paper. He loves wadding paper up, then trying to eat it.

Paper, wipe bags (are her fave!), the puppy, bottles of any sort.

She's not mobile yet so she can't get to much.

We were working the church picnic last night and she was with me. We do the stand that has pull tabs that you peel back and try to match 3 of the same fruits to win a stuffed animal. Her favorite thing was to lunge out of my arms and grab the bucket with all the pull tabs in it and dump it as fast as she could. We ended up not working much and letting my parents and DD1 do most of the work cause she was just getting to be too much work for me.
