filling an egg carton with rocks
Elise is endlessly fascinated with rocks - soon they'll all be covered up by snow!
stacking rings on a post
We have borrowed a couple of these types of stacking activities from friends. This one is made by Plan Toys.
caring for Louise
Elise has been really into tending to her dolls lately. She will spend the better part of the morning covering them in blankets - it's really sweet.
picking the seeds out of a spaghetti squash
We sprinkled the seeds with salt, pepper, and cumin and then toasted them in the oven. They were yummy, but kind of hard for someone with only six teeth to eat!
reading in the book nook
Elise continues to enjoy hanging out in her book nook. Right now, she's really into "lift the flap" books.
sweeping leaves off the sidewalk with Nana (my mom)
I love that somehow Elise ended up with the big broom, and my mom with the child-sized one!
