Mommy's Best Helper

Eliana: Mommy had to leave the room for a minute today so she put Ami down in his chair. He started crying so I went over to him and said "Ami, Mommy coming." Then I gave him a toy and said "Ami, thisa you" (this is for you" and rocked him in his chair. He stopped crying and when Mommy came back he was smiling at me!

I like to do lots of things with Ami, like sing to him, clap his hands, share Mommy's lap with him, read him books, and pretend to feed him things that I've cooked in my play kitchen. (Today it was soup and carrots.)

Later Mommy was cooking some zucchini and I wanted to help. I said "I wanna sand dayer" (I wanna stand there) so Mommy pulled the step stool up to the counter and showed me how to dip each slice of zucchini in egg and then in bread crumbs and put it in the pan.

Eliana: I had fun playing at my friends Sara and Rafaela's house today. Their mommy teaches a music class so we got to play with all the instruments and props.

I don't know the song about the glasses but that didn't stop me from trying them on!

We got pretty creative with the instruments. Who says they have to be used for making music?
