A Fun New Skill

Liam really is making progress by leaps and bounds and we couldn't be happier.  Last night, I realized that he's finally mastered an exciting new skill. He can play.  I mean, it's not like he didn't play before, but he didn't know how to really play with toys appropriately like a typical two year old would do.

Rachel's birthday party was last night, and we had it at the pool. I keep a little bag of the McDonald's Live dolls in my pool bag for the kids to play with. Liam pulled all of the dolls out and had them pretending to walk and talk with each other.  We've worked on this with farm animals, but not as much with people.  While we've introduced the concept, there hasn't been a ton of work on it.  I'm so pleased to see him generalizing concepts.  Way to go, Liam!


  1. I can't believe how big he has gotten! I am really behind on reading blogs - he looks like a bona-fide toddler now. And way to go for learning the new skills - I am relieved that he seems recovered from the baseball incident!
