we bought this shape sorter when theo was tiny – six months old, maybe. way before he knew his shapes let alone could match them with their corresponding holes and fit them together.
now he sits, a month shy of his second birthday, easily matching and naming the shapes and colors.
he asks for help if and when he (rarely) needs it and finishes the whole thing in less than a minute, only to empty it out and start all over again.
i’m all kinds of sappy over here, thinking about my little man turning two;
amazed by how much he has learned and changed and grown;
grateful that i get to spend every day watching this all first-hand.
