I usually flatten the playdough for them. Noah is getting pretty good at pressing the cookie cutters down to make a shape. Aidas can now roll the playdough with his hands. He likes to sing Roly Poly while doing this.
working on at the daycare. When we finally did leave, Noah had a MAJOR meltdown - screaming, cavorting his body in the wagon, etc., etc., etc. It's hard to leave, and I really felt his pain. We'll have to go back for another visit sometime.
On the way home, we decided to feed a squirrel some cookie. It was nice having the squirrel up close so that we could talk about it. At some point though, Aidas realized that he needed the cookie more than the squirrel did and stopped sharing. That was the signal to "move on"!
A visit from an old friend.....J!
J. was at our daycare for a few days, and it was like she never left! Noah and Aidas welcomed her. She had a great time playing at the wading pool, the playground, and around the apartment with the boys. She is as delightful as ever, and we hope to keep in touch!
I call the picture above "The reunion".
