Our little Mechanic!

Our little engine that could is still kicking! We bought it off Kijiji a while back and shortly after that the batteries died. We never really replaced them because Jack was just pleased to run around pushing it and we didn't think the sounds would make a difference. However lately he has been so curious about the knobs I felt guilty leaving the batteries dead for so long. So it was time for him and Daddy to fix the car! (Starting early - hopefully Jack will be a mechanic!)
Jack was so excited to help daddy take off the front panel!

He loved to tinker and pretend like he was fixing the car up. Jack is really hitting his stride when it comes to babbling. He babbled to us all about the car with an air of complete superiority. I think he knows what he's up to!
He even used Mommy's nail file a little bit to buff up the car all over. Hahah this little guy is creative with his set of tools. He seemed impressed with his work and decided to take his ride out for a spin!
This captures it perfectly - zooming across the room and laughing the whole way :).

We loved watching him check out all of the different features of the car that worked now that we properly installed batteries. A little radio, horn, gear shifter and when the hood is popped open it makes a sound. Too much fun!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another post about our Happily Hectic Household!
