Nooa is the cutest little gamer. He just loves to play with game boxes, trying to open them. His eyes just light up whenever he sees game boxes — particularly when I get some games in mail and there’s a bunch of games lying on the floor, he’ll go crazy. I’m wondering what’s going to happen when our 900 euro game order arrives… He’ll go completely bonkers, I believe.
Nooa also understands the word “lautapeli” (board game in Finnish). I was talking about games with Johanna, when Nooa jumped up, ran to the closet where I keep my games. I opened the door and he went and got Funny Fishing out — I keep it low in the closet so Nooa can reach it. He examined the pieces a bit, then promptly forgot about it.
Later I got him to collect the pieces and pack the game up. He closed the box (he still needs some practise with that, his style is cringe-inducing) and then went to put the game back to the closet — the game has a special spot there, Nooa will always put it in the right place (that’s the thing with one-year olds, for them things belong to a certain place and they’ll make sure everything’s in the right place, most of the time…). Such a cute little gamer!
