When you teach your toddler to use your iPhone...


...this is what you end up with in your pictures. Lovebug was apparently using the Curious George Coloring Book app (his new favorite) and saved this to my pictures. I assume that Curious George is somewhere underneath all of the hearts but it's hard to tell.

Yes, both of my toddlers have an obsession with my phone. Bad, I know! I've created monsters. The picture below was taken when I asked Princess to show me her shirt. She stood up to show it to me and then proceeded to walk to me (a huge accomplishment since she's still against walking all the time). As she was walking towards me, she was saying "I see" the whole time.

I have found that Lovebug knowing how to use my phone though does have its benefits. If I want him to be quiet while we're somewhere I just hand it to him and he's happy. I have a page of apps that are just for him (Wheels on the Bus, Old McDonald, Monkey's Jumping on the Bed and now Curious George coloring app). He loves them all. He also knows how to scroll through the pictures and watch videos. He occasionally tries to send an email but so far he hasn't figured that out, phew!

The other day he wanted to go with me to watch Sissy (his name for Princess) at The Little Gym. I took him along. He sat out in the viewing area and watched her whole close. Part way through I gave him my phone just to make sure he stayed quiet (he is not even 3 yet afterall). He played with it until the class was over. When I went out after class the father that was sitting out there, commented on how amazed he was that Lovebug knew how to use the phone so well and was scrolling through pictures. He even knew how to go to the menu and find the next thing he wanted to play with. *sigh* yes I have definitely created a monster...

Wow! I can't believe he can use your phone so well! I'm amazed! I still have to lock mine to keep my kids from calling anyone! (Except they can still call emergency numbers, NICE.)
