I’ve noticed while minding Louisette and other toddlers that most of their time is spent exploring the world (requiring little more than observation on my part, which is awesome since conversations are a teensy bit repetitive): tasting, pulling, turning, shoving, trying on, putting something into a box, taking it out, etc etc. Can I lift the lid while sitting on it? What noise do ping pong balls make when I knock them together? What do cat eyeballs feel like?
They use a true scientific method, trying the same thing over and over until they have enough data points and can move on (pending further research). Speaking of movement – it’s a good thing we’ll be moving house soon (assuming nothing goes horribly wrong 🙂 ) because Louisette has just realised she can climb bookshelves. Including the ones that are holding the safety gate in place. The safety gate at the top of the stairs.
Hopefully the cat eyeball thing will continue to interest her a little longer.
Sadly, pics don’t seem to be working at present. I may or may not make it up to you someday.
