Rosemary is currently 13 months old.
Tot School got a little off course this week since we were so busy. However, we did lots of preparations for Christmas!
Rosemary did her first craft project. I was too busy hovering to take pictures of her actually putting it together, but here is the finished product:
I did attempt to do some guidance, but she was so excited just to stick the items down that I let it go. After she placed each piece she said, "There!" She had a lot of fun. The craft kit came from a visit with Santa and was purchased by them from the Oriental Trading Company. Everything had an adhesive backing except for the paper legs which I put on myself with hot glue once Rosemary was finished sticking everything to Santa's tummy. She did put the buckles on the shoes herself.
We also made Christmas cookies. It was a tradition when I was growing up for my Mom to make sugar cookies which we would decorate. We'd paint them with evaporated milk with some food coloring. I was pretty sure Rosemary wasn't quite ready to paint cookies, so I opted for snickerdoodles with colored sugar. She enjoyed throwing the balls in the sugar and then of course licking her fingers!
We did practice a few body parts as I had planned. Rosemary knows where her feet are and where her head is. I will try to get a picture, but she doesn't like to perform for the camera! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
