What's Matt been up to?

Matt has been such a tonic for me during our turbulent season. I haven't been that active in taking photos as usual, but here are a few showing what he has been up to the last month or so.

Matt enjoys mixing things that are in a bowl, as well as the taste-testing (don't we all). At his music and movement class they have been doing a song with actions about making cakes, so Matt's cooking skills have been reinforced there too. I regularly make mini muffins for Matt's snack time. We don't have a sign for muffins so we call them "baby cakes" - using the signs that Matt knows.

Some days are messier than others. But always entertaining!

For fun and for exposure to textures we play with rice, pasta, and beans. Matt loves digging his hands in the various mixtures; hiding and finding small toys and again more mixing and stirring. It is a great activity for the rainy days.

Stay tuned for an update on Matt's ball skill development.

Matt looks like a natural in the kitchen. We have tried using noodles and rice for sensory play with Max, but all he would do in dump it out and not play in it. Great seeing pics of the big guy! Kelly F

Wow is that ever cool! You've given me some good ideas with the rice and sensory play. I'll have to try it. Matt does look like he enjoys baking, that's so fun. Thanks for sharing photo's, it's so fun to watch him grow
