New Activity

I picked up some lace cards today because I thought they would be fun (and help William with fine motor skills). They aren't the "real" lace cards since they are wooden, but I like them better than the paper ones. He immediately caught on to what he was supposed to do with them, but had a hard time coordinating everything since the string was so long.

Don't you just love the way his tongue sticks out while he concentrates?


After a while he wanted to lay down on the couch and work on his "puzzle craft" so I asked him if he wanted a blankie on. "Sure, tain tu" was his immediate response. Alrighty then!

After he finished working on his crafts I asked if he wanted a banana. "Ummmmmmm....no tain tu. I'm good." He's always catching me off guard with little things like this. Watching and listening to him is like watching and listening to a mini-me! Yikes. (Of course I had to insist that he wasn't good, and that a banana was definitely something he wanted since he needed fruit with his upcoming lunch. We bantered back and forth for a minute and finally settled on an apple. Whatever. At least it was fruit.)
