When the food shopping arrived earlier than planned Sprog was really helpful in carrying it to the kitchen with Daddy.
Then he knew where the bottles of fizzy water were stored and this afternoon we played with them big time.
The first thing he did was start the push them all over using the other bottles…complete with lots of screaming, squealing and giggling.
Then there was the lining up of the bottles. He went through the colours with some questions from me about pointing to particular ones. He has perfected his version of ‘purple’ which is ‘durble’ whilst eyeing up the blueberry fizzy water.
The last thing he discovered was that the bottles roll…all the way down to the patio doors…and back.
My heart melts with pride at these last 2 shots. Sprog had lined them up and was counting down the line of bottles. He hasn’t mastered the actual sounds of numbers at the moment but he says that everything is the number ‘tue’ as he pronounces it. He sat counting along the line ‘tue’, ‘tue’, ‘tue’, ‘tue’. He is just so gorgeous and clever!
It baffles my mind about how he is learning so much new stuff!
He’s my little superstar!
I would urge you to have a go at free unstructured play even if you’re a bit apprehensive. I did not plan any of this, it simply started by Sprog picking up the bottles for himself.
What stuff have your little ones played with that you never expected?!
