these first weeks of 2015 have been cold and windy and snowy; the kind of days that you just want to stay bundled up inside.

here’s a quick look at what we’ve been up to…

we have (mostly) been passing the time with lots of markers, books and puzzles (and, let’s be real… an episode or two of daniel tiger). we dusted this farm puzzle off the other day and gave it a go.

theo is becoming increasingly more independent, curious, and focused in his play. he sat with this puzzle taking the pieces out and putting them back in three or four different times.

a couple of months ago he would have asked for help with every piece.

as he plays he talks to himself.

“farmer, fit there!” and “uh oh, no fit. try again.”

(the ‘try again’ thing is just the cutest, right?)

after a while he grabbed a bucket, put all the animals in, and proclaimed that he was heading to the beach!
