If anyone says life with a Toddler is boring, well, they haven’t met my Toddler, or any Toddler for that matter.
Today is just a normal day at our Zoo, I mean home.
We did so much today, that it would take at least three posts to do it justice. I mean tell me you have accomplished this much today: We woke up in a good mood, read a couple of books (on stars of course), ate breakfast, danced to music, played chase with Mama and a ball, created a sculpture, drew, went to the library to get books, heard a story at the library, ate lunch, drew, created another sculpture, and “sorted” pompoms, and watch a few minutes of tv to wind down before nap. And the day is not done yet. Man I am tired just writing about it.
Below is what happened between after lunch and before nap… so about an hour of time.
(Also, my 52 weeks task is Details, and my Photo Class assignment is Action… so I tried to combine the two.)
He loves to draw. And I love to watch him.

We just recently put play clay down for Kodi to play with. Even at 19 months old, we had to work on not eating it. He kept saying “Yum.” And I kept having to say “Yuck!” Eventually we made it through to the non-eating side. He is really loving playing with it, and really enjoyes the sticks I have out to poke through the clay.

I really need to do a whole post on these. I saw the idea for these on this blog. We played with them a little bit but recently he has been in love with these! I have a bunch of photos from the other day where he was sorting out the colors–on his own he started doing this!
These are such a great toy because they are cheap and you can really grow with these. They are fun to put into things. Later you can add sorting by color/size, and then onto counting. They are even fun to imagine they are food (yes, I have been handed a bowl of pompoms and given the sign eat-nom nom. Stuffed animals like them too!).
If you get them, get a variety of sizes, hues, and textures.
He is very fond of the sparkling ones. And has learned to say blue because is very fond of the blue sparkling ones.
