This week we've played in the sandbox, tried (desperately, but in vain) to fly a kite, discovered a "fort" underneath Samuel's crib, gotten tangled in thread while Mom sews, ran around outside with the neighbor kids, and played all of our board/party games including Scrabble, Rumikub, Clue, Jenga, and others. (When I say we "played" them, I mean we opened the box and Leah spread the peices all over the room for a few minutes). She didn't really get the concept of Twister, but has learned to match letters or pictures from the other games.
Helping out around the house:
Playing. She's painting Woody's boot with a paintbrush (Sorry it's kind of dark):
The "fort" or "hiding place" as she calls it. It's high enough for her to sit upright underneath and read a story or play with a secret toy.
Mermaid Leah. This is what her hair does in the tub. She's learned that if she gets messy enough at dinner she takes a bath afterward. Hmmm....How many baths does she expect to take in one day?
