Mars is 1 year, 4 months, 2 weeks, and 1 day old.
The best toys and activities for Mars are always the ones that don't cost much money. After dimsum today, we walked over to a party store and got him a red balloon. The smile on his face when we handed it to him was priceless. Then, we went to the pet store and he ran around with his balloon while watching the puppy training class and pointing at guinea pigs.
A couple of days ago, we bought one of those big bubble wands for a dollar, went into the backyard and blew bubbles. It made Mars so happy! He kept trying to chase them down. It was so much fun for him, and so much fun for us just watching him.
Here, a bubble just popped in front of his face:
Have a good week!
