One happy ‘Lil Bit


A quick little project (and winner of the drawing)

I am so happy it is September.  It means the end of the hot weather is coming soon.  It is also the month we celebrate Pete’s birthday.  I can’t believe he is turning 3 already!  I wanted to something for him to help him countdown the days (I really wanted to have this done at the beginning of the month).  So while Lil’ Bit took his morning nap, Pete and I did an art project.  I cut and taped and he took the scraps and glued them to a piece of paper.

I put a number on each flag, till his birthday flag.  It is hanging over his bed, so he’ll see it everyday till his birthday. I am still trying to figure out when he will remove each flag-either in the morning or right before bed.

Birthday Countdown

One of the great things is I can use this to work with Pete on his numbers.  He knows them, but he has be getting them out of order or skipping some.

And now for the winner from the Just Jewelry drawing:

…..Katy L.!


Something more fun today… August 24, 2012

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been trying different activities with ‘Lil Bit.  The last one was a lot of fun, though a bit messy.

He got to finger paint with pudding.  He loved it.  I put 1/2 of the vanilla on his tray and he went at it.  Then I mixed chocolate in with the rest and put some of it on his tray.  Here is the fun that ensued!

Oh, squishy!

So serious-have fun ‘lil bit!

That is more like it!

Boy! That was fun & good.
