Yes, I'm a total nerd. Gabe, for the first time ever, put all of the shapes back into the big ball! It was such a crowning moment!!!! My big boy is getting so big! It was so amazing to just sit there and watch him dexterously put the star shape in and then the circle, triangle, and finally the pentagon!!!!! I just love watching his mind work and figuring things out.
I bought some sidewalk chalk yesterday and I had so much fun! Gabe made a few squiggly marks, but for the most part, he just wanted to throw the chalk and break it into pieces, or carry them around in his mouth and run away from me! But I drew a beautiful blue flower and a green cat! OK, they weren't beautiful, but they were fun to do.
I hope in time he'll enjoy some artsy things to do...and we'll throw in some science experiments for good measure.
