What We Do ... 5

We love... The changing nature display. It hasn't lost its magic at all. Flower petals, paperwhite bulb, tree bark find their way to the display daily ... The great ideas and new projects by the lovely website Playful Learning. Sabrina and CC both are hitting big developmental milestones with language and this great site and the blog give me endless inspiration ... Bloesum Kids Open House series. I love seeing all those child-friendly homes, those cozy corners, those sweet children's rooms. This home validated my desire for a white leather couch even with kids! And this one is features a rainbow cake we must try! ... Feeding birds by the water.

We create... Stories and plays and pretend scenarios about fairies and princesses. It takes no time for Sabrina and her friends to dress up and enter make believe land ... CC has been crafting and drawing a lot now that her fine motor skills are catching up to her sister's. Her focus on enjoyment are so wonderful to see!

We read... Sabrina discovered the Magic Tree House books thanks to her cousin and is now "very interested" (her new expression) in what happens next to Jack and Annie. I've got a bunch of the books from the series reserved at the library,

We play... At Port Discovery in Baltimore, an indoor activity haven and playground. If you live in the area, don't miss it. The girls loved it and I earned a few extra mommy points by taking both of them up the maze, three floors up! ... Zimmbos is a game that both girls really like. It's the first one CC can really play. She doesn't understand the directions, but she can take tunrs and place the blocks really well!

I love the photo of your daughter and her friend dressed up. It captures a moment so well. I'll bet it will mean even more to you as she gets older. (Says a mama whose "little girl" is 13.)
