How did these past nine weeks pass by so quickly? I start back at work tomorrow and LO starts back at daycare. I am very excited for her actually. She started walking a few weeks ago and daycare is going to be a completely new experience for her now. She’s not a baby anymore. She really is a toddler.
The other night when I was giving her a bath, I realized that some of the things she used to play with are now completely different and new to her because of her new found skills. She plays with this one toy in her bath, an octopus ring game from skip hop. She has always been intrigued by the fountain in the toy but only recently has she learned that mommy can make the fountain work. So the entire bath consisted of her pointing at the fountain and her water bucket to get me to pour the water in. Watching her learn things like cause and effect is so cool.
Can’t wait for her to keep learning.
I found an idea on Pinterest to make a toy wallet for LO. Lately whenever we go out to stores, she wants to play with my wallet. Somehow I don’t think I need to give my one year old access to my credit cards just yet. I bought a cheap one for $9. It had to be a “real” wallet so she would play with it.
I filled it up with flash cards and inserts from magazines. I added a picture of DH and of me and put a few things in the zippered pouch.
LO loves it! She feels like such a big girl with her own wallet. And it doesn’t take too long to put it all back for the next time. 🙂
I don’t know how it happened but suddenly LO has turned into a girlie girl. She likes putting on “necklaces” which at the moment are made up of particular shaped mega blocks. She loves wearing her baby bracelet that says her name and whenever she gets a chance she will try and wear my jewelry. I’m not a girlie girl in the least. I don’t wear a lot of makeup and I wear the same jewelry every day.
It’s really great to see her develop her own personality.
