It's amazing to see things through Mark's eyes & watch how he enjoys the simplest things. This is really such a fun age, even with the picky eating.
Entertainment though, what do you do with your children? Especially when it's getting hot and/or humid or you have rainy weather, basically time when you need to limit outside activity.
We don't watch tv much, so occasionally we pop in a movie or a cartoon for him to enjoy. That's perfect for these steamy temps we've been having lately, we've been chilling in the basement. When it's not so hot, we've taken him to the zoo, which he absolutely loves. Last night I pulled out some watercolor paint and he had a blast. silly me should have changed though, my capris will never be the same. I did the quick scrapbook page using the paper he painted on as the background.
So in my world if there's no snow on the ground, we go outside, lol! We only spend rainy days in, and we do puzzles and playdoh, just starting to do alphabet and numbers books with the twins and Elizabeth
Katie has discovered bubbles and she loves them. We try to color and we do things with shapes and letters and numbers along with reading but she still has this tendency to put stuff in her mouth so often times the magnetic letters, books, crayons, paper, etc. have to go into 'time out' because she tries to eat them.
Mark was happily crunching away on a crayon just this morning. I didn't notice he had one in his car seat (and I'm surprised it wasn't melted goo), and we hear him crunching. I turn and ask him what he's eating, and he sweetly tells me "crayon, mommy". So I took the 1/2 he had not eaten, and pre-warned Kim (daycare) she may have a purple dipe change later on. Silly boy.
