I gave Andy a stack of these cards to mess with while Brendan did his worksheets today. Brendan later helped me pick them up. Of course, he was telling me what everything was as he did so. I had no clue that he knows what a diamond and oval (well, “obal”) are nor that he knows right and left! :O Wow. In fact, the only 2 things he missed were pentagon and hexagon!
We also worked on patterns for the first time. His worksheet had pictures of beads on a string with alternating colors (say: red, blue, red, blue, red, blue, ___). You had to color the last bead the correct color. That took no explanantion at all, he picked up on it right away.
A couple weeks ago, we got this little activity in the mail from Tide. Brendan LOVED it. I thought I’d pass it on.

Andy has been the Whine Monster!!! Ack! He is driving me insane. He thinks he can and must do everything Bren is doing and perhaps isn’t getting enough stimulation. Yesterday I introduced him to Starfall and he LOVED it. Of course, Brendan discovered us and joined in too. Starfall has added some stuff to their ABC videos too. 😀 Love that site.
Andy has not been sleeping well. Somewhere between 2:30 and 5:30 am he wakes up wailing and I pull him into the guest bed with me. But I’m not really comfortable in that bed and roll around a lot and end up waking him up early. Sigh.
