Pop quiz: how do you get an 18-month old to sit still?
Trick question. They don’t sit still!

This little guy was as busy as they come. Mom and dad were prepared and brought a little scoot tricycle for him (so smart!), as well as a bear (which he had no interest in, whatsoever…good try though, mom).

Here are some of my favorites:
