Phew finally midway through September and I am just now able to catch my breath! Where did the end of the summer go? It seems like August just started and the next thing you know L is in school and the leaves are changing!
Here is a catch up post on what Little J was up to in August at 15 months.
Scrubbing apples. We have a wonderful apple tree in our yard. Both L and Little J enjoyed eating the apples from the ground as well as helping to make blackberry and apple sauce. This picture looks so civilised but it quickly turned into chaos as Little J decided it would be way more fun to tip out all of the water and roll the apples off the side of the deck!
Painting al fresco.
On the shelves. We didn't really have any strict "works" over the summer. I found it way too hard with L around as she always wants to interfere with what ever Little J is doing.
From the top left we have:
The shoe basket. LJ is still obsessed with shoes and dressing himself. We also have worked on sorting the shoes into pairs.
Stacking boxes, shape sorter and then the ever popular open and shut basket. I keep rotating different containers in this basket.
Bottom left is a emergency vehicle puzzle with little knobs to develop the pincer grip. An etch-a sketch type drawing board which we had when L was little. It is great fun to draw and then push the lever across to erase all of your work!
Melissa and Doug tool box. Hammering is the number one favourite at the moment. Little tow truck with wooden sorting shapes. The tow truck has a magnet on it to attach the shapes to. This is from Ikea.
These are just a few of the things that Little J got up to this summer. What is not shown is LJ's love of climbing. He will climb anything and everything. The number of times I've been out of the room for two seconds and when I come back he is actually on the kitchen table searching for scraps!! He certainly keeps me on my toes!
