Pantry Surprise 3/3/13

The baby has been practicing his fine motor skills. 

No, he hasn't been creating masterpieces with paints.
Or smooshing play dough into fantastic sculptures.
Or  sketching magnificent illustrations with pastels.
He hasn't even been drawing intricate designs with crayons.

(And it's a good thing, too, because he would eat the art supplies before he could finish his handiwork.)

So how has he been building up his muscles and strengthening his fine motor skills???

By filling holes, of course.  

Specifically, shoes.

He leaves little surprises for us all quite often.

Leighton tries to put his boots on for work? Surprise! A ball.
Alyssa tries to put her shoes on for church? Surprise! A block.
Jake tries to put his shoes on to play outside? Surprise! A plastic toy strawberry.

This time was a double surprise - a ball in a cup in a boot in the middle of the house. (Kinda makes you think of this song, huh?)

He's been practicing so much that he's just about mastered hole-filling. I think it's time to start working on another fine motor skill.

Maybe next week, he'll learn to write his name.
