We call him our little froggy. Ethan jumped up as high as he could as he leapt from the porch onto the snowy ground below.
They may be a bit big, but that didn’t stop him from taking them out of the closet and shuffling around. A few days later, he found it fun to go around in Mommy’s shoes, too.
I’ve been waiting a long time for this one, trying on many occasions to teach Ethan to turn the crank on his jack-in-the-box. He discovered a while ago that he could short circuit the process by pulling back the latch, but turning the knob all the way through the song remained illusive. I wish I could have been there to see it. While I was at work, Beth got to enjoy to enjoy watching Ethan play the whole tune, including the dramatic ending, “pop goes the weasel”.
Ethan has a shape sorter that looks like an elephant. The body of the elephant is a wheel that turns to reveal holes for various shapes. Ethan has been matching the pegs with their holes for a while, but today for the first time, he rotated the wheel to search for a hole whose shape matched the shape of his peg.
