Watch Her Grow...

This Week's Focus: Language

  Interactions with Materials
  • Q-ball and I are currently participating in a small music class, and she is loving it!  She talks about it all week before we get to go.  She has loved playing with the rhythm sticks, drums, and- most awesome of all- the parachute game.
Interactions with Others 
  • Last week held some major changes in Q-ball's dealings with others and with overcoming separation anxiety.  She told us that she wanted to go to the nursery during church, and then she just did it!  She really enjoyed playing with the other children and especially the toys.  When we picked her up, she was obviously happy for the reunion and needed some time to decompress and think about everything, but overall it was a good experience!
  • And, Q-ball stayed with her first non-family caretaker for about 30 minutes the other night. Mama and Daddy have a no-kids-allowed meeting coming up, and we are working to prepare Q-ball for the event. Again, she was ready for the reunion, but seemed to handle everything as well as can be expected.
Interactions with Life 
  • Q-ball has started her own her fashion trend- she can't seem to decide if she prefers her mouse socks or train socks, so, while the days start with her wearing a single pair of socks, the day ends with her wearing one of each.  
We are linking up with Vibrant Wanderings!  Check out what the other kiddos are up to!


  1. Oh, I want to hear more about this music class! I've been wanting to register for Music Together, but I keep forgetting until the sessions are already a couple of weeks in.

    What huge leaps for Q-ball with her confidence and trust in other caregivers. That must be so cool to watch!

  2. I've really wanted to do music together, too. It sounds wonderful- especially for families with more than one child. Right now, we are actually in a 10 week class that a local church is offering free of charge for those that sign up. It's a great service- and no religion, so really all are welcome to sign up. But, like so many of these things, I think there are so many people who are actually in true need that I wish would sign up!
