The kids were being so cute together – I just grabbed my camera to take a few photos, sort of snap-shot style, of them in action. While taking these two (above), Big Cousin very politely reminded me that he doesn’t like having his picture taken. I have to say, it is really sweet the way he says it. You feel like he is really grown up, maybe because it’s usually us grown-ups who are camera shy.

Last week I asked if anyone had any safe craft ideas for young toddlers and I got some great feedback! I ran out and got several of the “My First Crayola” products, sidewalk chalk, etc. However, I think Baby O isn’t quite ready for crafts…She still wants to eat all of the crayons and markers! My Mother-in-Law had the great idea of having her “paint” with icing…So, we tried that out and she was quite enthralled…
In an effort to solicit genuine smiles from the girls, we were dancing to “Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle, Yeah!”…I’ll refrain from typing all of the lyrics for risk of complete embarrassment. If you know the song I’m talking about, then you can appreciate the humor of seeing 4 adults and a few kids dancing to it in the park at 9am on a Saturday morning.
Does anyone know about crafts you can do with a 1.5 year old? I am just chomping at the bit to start having crafty time with her, but I’m not sure if I know of any supplies that are really “safe” at this age. I’d love any suggestions.
I think this is just the stage she’s at. She tries so many new things every day, and as soon as she gets tired, her patience for learning wanes. It’s the same for me actually! I just don’t look as cute when I’m fussy.
