Watching Him Get Smarter

Today has been a day for working things out.

First, when I went to put his coat on, he had his Eggplant in the hand I reached for. I went to reach for the other hand, just as he switched Eggplant to his other hand. We then proceeded to do this dance three or four times--the same dance mankind has done for ages, as we both switch back and forth, trying to line up our free hands.

So finally, Adam stopped, bent down very carefully, and put Eggplant down. Then he put his arms in the sleeves, bent over, and picked him up again. Problem solved.

He's been working on his socks really hard lately. Marsha showed him how to open the sock up, and he gets that. But he still places it on top of his foot, instead of pulling it on. We're working on that.
I also saw him thinking when he picked up the little plastic pizza-cutter thing that came with Mike's new Play-Do set. Adam held it up to me and made blowing noises--which is what he does when he wants me to blow on the pinwheel. He made that connection, and thought it would work. We blew on that for a while before we gave up.

Smart little nugget.

I read somewhere that a good way to practice putting on socks is to put them on hands. They are closer and a more friendly shape. Although Jude can do hands, but not feet, at this point, so I don't know how much it is helping!
