favorite cds and...
personalized tote bag! Can you guess which essentials Brooklyn never leaves home without? This week it would be the Primary Children's Songbook CD's and either her "Kids Club Bag" (made by her grandma for the days when I used to go to the gym in Louisiana) or her mini-backpack (not pictured) with pink hearts on it. She really loves all the songs on CD #5 which are mostly action songs and seasonal songs. We routinely begin listening to song #6 on the CD, "Give said the Little Stream". Other favorites: "In the Leafy Treetops" and "Oh What do you do in the Summertime?"
Much to my delight, Brooklyn has become quite independent in her free time. She will select some toys and bring them out for her enjoyment. Usually it's dolls or books, or sometimes just her blankie and her thumb when she's tired in the mornings. Today it was play-dough, that was different. I'm always amazed when I look down to the livingroom from the loft bedroom above her and what she what activity is quietly occupying her. This (pictured below) was what I found one day this week. She had brought out a book I got a few months ago, but we haven't looked at in a while. It's got magnetic facial features for different animals, and it was pretty hillarious to see the combinations that looked "right" to her.
Hey, at least the color of the "mouth" is matching the tone of the rest of the face!
Imagine trying to blow bubbles or eat with those "lips."
Don't you think every camel should have buck teeth and a third eye for a nose?
