Austin & I took a field trip with Auntie Suz to the land of IKEA. Austin came back with a souvenier. (Yes, apparently I'm that mom that buys her kid something whenever they go to the store - I need to work on that.) The moment I saw the abacus, I just knew he'd love it and sure enough, he went crazy for it in the store. It didn't cost much and really, any son of a math nerd deserves his first abacus by the age of 8 months, right? I can only hope and pray that it instills a love of numbers!
See? I think he already learned how to count to 2,113,445,100!
