More Presents, More Cheers, and a Helicopter

As I mentioned yesterday, five-year-old Anthony's first present unwrapping set a pattern that we saw a number of times throughout the morning....

Opening the Present from Grandma and Grandpa

For whatever reason, the present from Grandma and Grandpa generated a powerful pose instead. I don't think he really knew what it was, but the picture of a helicopter was likely sufficient to trigger the celebration.

The helicopter thing has a central hub with the helicopter connected by a rod, so that the helicopter can go around and around, and up and down in conjunction with how much power is applied. It actually takes a fair amount of skill to control the thing, but it was perfect for him....
