Moving from the infant stages to the baby stages has taken a lot of patience and learning as we go.  Our simple living philosophy has still applied every step of the way and our toddler has grown up this way.  By limiting the amount of toys and possessions he has we have seen his imagination flourish day by day.  He has learned how to take nothing and make something out of it and it is fascinating to be the observer.  Most of the toys he has we have curated to facilitate imagination, we also try to be as conscientious as possible about buying eco-friendly and local when available.
