Water Bottles

Do you ever just stand (or sit) and watch your child play? Like really, truly, and intensely watch him/her? I find myself doing that more and more these days because each time I do, I'm amazed. The things G is learning by playing awes me. You can tell SO much about the type of person he is and is becoming even though he's a mere 16 months. It's incredible.

He's independent

... as much as a 16 month can be, that is

He's organized

He's fastidious about cups, bottles, and anything of the like.

They must all be properly stood up, not to be lying down.

He's strong

Both physically and mentally

He's curious

He's creative

He's my sweet baby little boy

and I love him so much. 

A Child's Mind

It's a wonderful thing; a child's mind. 
A special gift that we as adults need to enter in to at various points during our day.
Children see the world differently; children see the world as a good, pure place.
They play, all day, everyday. For them, playing is learning

They learn how things work

Where things belong

... or where, in their minds, they believe they belong.

Because everything has a place. 
And for a child, that place may not be the same one you or I may think of,
but some place better...
some place only a child would imagine.
Some place that requires ingenuity.

Some place fun.
