Assembling Furniture With a Toddler

Noah's new room is the hub of activity in our house, and he is loving it! Matt decided to assemble the bookcase first, and I planned on keeping Noah busy in other parts of the house. Noah didn't agree with the plan because he wanted to help Daddy with every step of the process. And he really was quite helpful! He hammered in every wooden peg for the entire bookcase, then watched as Matt finished the assembly. He was so excited to see the final product, and it fits perfectly under the window so it doubles as a window seat, which is perfect for Noah.

Matt assembled the shell of the dresser while Noah was napping, and when he woke up, Noah was so excited that he brought his drums in and played a song in this new room. Here's the pictures of the assembly process.
