Ella is very into a puzzle phase at the moment.
She has always liked puzzles, but had outgrown the toddler ones we had and hadn't initiated playing with them in months.
I picked up a 25 piece puzzle at the dollar store a couple months ago...and promptly forgot about it =)
I rediscovered it a few weeks ago and just placed it in her room during her rest time.
When I walked in to get her up...there the puzzle sat...fully complete! Ella was beaming with pride over her accomplishment!
She's a right smart girl...even if she gets chocolate ice cream all over her face still =)
Ever since then, there has been no stopping her. We picked up a few more and she worked on them and worked on them until she mastered them.
Here's a sight that makes this Momma's heart smile...both of my children happily (and quietly) playing with puzzles together.
Who cares that Ezra only sat there for about 1/2 a minute and just long enough for me to capture this photo...It was a glorious 1/2 minute =)
What are your children into these summer days?
