J-jo is 19 months.
Aside from the usual (see most recent Tot Shelves post for reference), J-jo is currently working very hard on learning to use the potty. It is slow going, but I feel we have turned a corner.
He spent quite some time with the Lauri Toys Number Express. He likes to pull the numbers out. Isn’t so good at putting them back in.
He likes to stack the pegs.
I love to see the two of them working independently side by side. Bear is doing cut and paste work and J-jo is playing with play dough. (Prior to him getting out the play dough, I was attempting to teach him to use scissors, but although he appears interested he is far from ready.)
Then he decided to draw.
I set up this table in the kitchen for more messy practical life activities like spooning flour. He decided it looked like his teething medicine (chamomile powder – don’t ask, it’s from Costa Rica) and just wanted to eat it so in the end this particular activity got removed.
His pouring of beans is also here.
J-jo’s favorite thing is to kick or throw balls, bean bags, balloons… he’s pretty good at keeping the kicking and throwing to these items. I don’t remember Bear being so delighted by it. He will entertain himself with a balloon for a long time, giggling away as it moves in unexpected ways.
This afternoon I reorganized the play room and school room. I took photos just now but will write a second post to show you.
