Baby beads

Fig has gone, in a matter of days, from watching me playing with his toys to actually starting to play with a few choice things himself. His favourite toy is still a muslin, which he finds endlessly entertaining until he pulls it over his face and can’t get it off, at which point the screaming starts.  But his new fave rave are these Manhattan baby beads.
