I’m fascinated by how play develops over time. Henry is just starting to reach for specific toys, inspect them (eat them), throw them and pick them back up. These days Nora is so focused on her play as work – she loves to line up her toys in straight little lines or work intently on a puzzle. Her imagination is exploding, too. Her animals “talk” to one another and she insists on her dinosaurs joining at the table for most meals, where they get their share of dinner straight from her plate. There is nothing as rewarding and fascinating as watching these babies of mine grow up.
