JJ is also really enjoying taking pictures. He’s always wanting to take my camera and snap some shots. The other day at the park he took this one at the top of the playset….
JJ has also found a new love for Berenstain Bears books! My mom was cleaning out and found my old set of probably about 50 of the BB series books. So, she sent them over, and that is all JJ wants to read now. The little lessons in each book are actually really good because a lot of the issues that brother and sister bear go through in the books are what we are going through with JJ and Jayla. Like tattling. Somewhere along the line, JJ has begun tattling on Jayla for anything and everything. I wasn’t quite sure how to handle it or put a stop to it. Then I read what Mama Bear said in her book, “tattling is telling just to be mean.” Good definition Mama Bear. I think I can take it from there.
JJ is now also able to re-tell the happenings of the day in story form. So, he can give Jake a little recap of things that we did, complete with sound effects, voice changes, excitement, sadness, seriousness, etc. It’s one of my favorite things now to just listen to him talk about the day from his perspective. It just makes me realize how observant he is with all of the little details that he remembers.
Lastly, I have to share this picture….
