‘book’marks & puzzles

It’s always cute hearing when kids learn new words or when they make up their own words. Over the last few years we’ve heard many renditions of various words Hope’s learned to say. Considering her age she has a decent vocabulary but I couldn’t help but grin thinking how cute she was today with her latest rendition of a word. Today she had pointed to a small bruise on her leg and said it was a “book”mark. She does have three birthmarks so she’s heard us speak of birthmarks many times, but it’s the first time I’ve ever heard “book”mark.

Oh, maybe it’s because she’s been reading a lot lately. Her latest favorite book is “Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What do you See?” – which she checked out from the library last week. She LOVES the book so much that we might just have to buy it – then again she also knows how much I love pandas. She’s starting to learn to read little words but she can’t quite read this one on her own. But if you just saw her with the book when she reads it outloud you’d swear she could read it from cover to cover!

This past month Hope has also become a puzzle savvy kid. It all started with the plea for a puzzle when we were at the store. I wasn’t sure if a 100 piece puzzle would be too much for a 4 year old but that’s all it took to see that she has a great fascination for figuring things out. Now naturally we’ve acquired and conquered many more puzzles since, to include up to a 170 piece puzzle. There have been several days where she’s been content for hours putting together multiple puzzles. One things for sure, she’s a thinker!
