Tot School


Jack is 24 months old


For the past two weeks, Jack has wanted to read "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" multiple times a day. My mom gave me a felt board set with all the letters and the coconut tree, and he loves to play with those. We worked a little bit on letter sounds, but mostly he insists that all the letters make the "sssssss" sound. :-) I'm in the midst of compiling a Chicka Tot Book for the week after Thanksgiving.


Jack plays dress up all the time, but this week he wanted to shake things up a bit by dressing up as his brother. Silly kid!


We broke out the Color Wonder kit that Gigi and Papa Jack gave him for his birthday. He liked coloring for a bit, but then began pretending the marker caps were "horns." Again, he's a silly (if creative) kid!

We visited A Flip Zone on Friday night for some energy busting. Jack had a great time climbing, hanging, and running in circles.


Saturday morning I was watching Kennison and Colton, so Jack had fun playing with playdough with his cousins. He's getting good at rolling.

This weekend we went ahead a got out our Christmas tree and decorations. Jack rediscovered his love of the Little People Nativity Set (these are on major sale right now at Amazon and are a great toy, in my opinion!) Meemaw and Papa Jim gave him last Christmas. This year he could identify all the animals (although he thinks the cow looks like a horse), Mary, Baby Jesus, and the Kings. We've been reading the Christmas story at bedtime, and that's an improvement over his initial interpretation of the pictures in the story: Charlie (Jesus), Mama (Mary), Daddy (Joseph), and the Cowboys (Wise Men). :-)

And a few life school opportunities:


He honed his photography skills...


... and got into the diaper cream in the downstairs changing station (now secured in the bathroom cabinet)... twice!

Jack is pretty good with the camera--and I love the diaper cream "war paint." That was hilarious.
