Arts & Crafts
I'm not great at having Jillian do much crafty stuff yet besides coloring, but after being sick for half the week, I thought it was time to open the finger paints.
We ate all the sugar cookies I had baked, so I got adventurous and made another batch, with white chocolate chips and almonds (couldn't find macadamia nuts). Jillian helped me whisk together the dry ingredients.
Jillian practiced eating with a spoon this week, too, which she's not mastered yet, but I figured oatmeal would have enough consistency to not be a complete mess.
This week, a shipment from Omaha Steaks arrived from my mom. We LOVE getting those gifts!!! Even more fun was the dry ice that was in the cooler. Daddy made smoke in a cup for Jillian to play with (supervised, of course!).
We had playgroup on Friday at Columbia Gymnastics with some of our other mommy friends! Jillian enjoyed being at a "real" gymnastics gym. Here's my favorite picture from the day. You can read more about those adventures here.
In addition to wanting to count, Jillian has started lining up her cars when she plays with them. She's also getting better at smiling for me when I take a picture!
And lastly, we checked out some lacing toys from the library and Jillian did better with them than I expected she would!
Hope you had a great week!! Head over to 1+1+1=1 to check out some other Tot School ideas!!
