8mo DS and I are completely snowed in (this is day number 3!) while DP is away for work... and we are going a little stir crazy! What kinds of fun things are you doing with your similarly aged babe?

YMCA. I got financial assistance for the YMCA (I only pay about $10 a month for a full membership!) so we go there a few times a week and I leave him at child watch (which is really great here) so I can work out in the next room. It's such a nice break for me and change of scenery for him. I love it!
With DS I remember a lot of banging at this age! Anything that made noise was a hit!
I also did a "textures" board which was a big hit. I took various items (cotton ball, emery board, tin foil, etc...) and attached them to a poster-sized board for him to feel and explore. We also had a bag of "special" toys (which were really just my old things like wooden kitchen spoons or hairbrushes) that I would pull out when things were getting cranky. I decorated the bag with big colorful stars and tried to make it a big deal. We still use this as a distraction on a rainy/snowy/colder than cold day.
