Summer is 13 months old.
It's been awhile since I posted an update on little Summer. In mid June, our laid back summer suddenly became chocked full of activities, building a house, big surprises and both girls' birthdays. We have finally begun to settle down and I couldn't be more thankful.
It's hard to believe my littlest girl is already one! While Summer is the more serious of the two girls, she loves being silly and is very mischievous.
She loves anything to do with Abby. One afternoon, they made Zoob necklaces and crowns.
Then, in normal Summer fashion she takes off with a handful of toys and tries to hide. I gave her a recycled gum container so she could put her Zoobs in and dump them out. We also closed the top to make a shaker, which she enjoyed.
The same gum container worked perfect for practicing small spaces. The small flap on top was the perfect size for inserting pom poms. She loved to grab a handful and feel the softness.
At first, she tried to cram a whole fist full of pom poms into the small space. After a few attempts, she understood to try adding one at a time.
She wasn't too interested in her animal puzzle this week. She mainly picked the pieces up and carried them around or banged them together. :)
She also wasn't too interested in actually building with the foam blocks. However, she did love and study the various textures on each block.
One of her favorite activities is kicking the ball and throwing it back and forth.
She also really loves reading! This little book is her go to book, it's filled with colors and textures. Most times, I will find her on the floor or her little couch and it's always with this particular book.
Summer loved Abby's learning toy of the week, a mix and measure kit. It's Abby's favorite! I gave her some foam shaped blocks to practice with transferring and pouring.
