It seems that Wyatt wasn't crawling until he was. He went from cautiously optimistic crawling to this
He doesn't crawl, he speeds. One second he's chewing on a bottle filled with beans on the floor in the living room and the next he's gone....to some corner to chew on dog hair and picky up teeny tiny pieces of whatever and generally having a blast. And now that he's mastered speed he's moved on to lifting himself up onto anything; the piano bench, Paige's wooden tool area, our purple couches. This is both amusing and completely horrific because he's fallen a dozen times already. This new mobilitiy has made our lives a bit easier though, because the frustration that comes with NOT being able to move properly is sort of annoying. I'd much rather wipe dust off a babies knees than listening to him whine because he's been in the same spot for 10 minutes trying to master moving.
In between trying to tame a 3 year old who's very apparently a 16 year old trapped in a smaller body, and dealing with Wyatt's mobility, I am struggling with my Playful Learning Spaces class. Okay, not really struggling because I'm reading and soaking in the knowledge but it's the creating of the spaces. I have so many ideas swirling in my brain and the only one I've really worked on executing is the writing station.
We have a letter of the week (here obviously is A), ABC wooden cubes that I made, ABC stamps, two blank journals (one is floral, pretty and lined and the other is less astetically pleasing and more school-y), wooden twig pencils, ABC stamps and stickers and not featured....a chalkboard wall next to this that I made using chalk board WALL paper that comes off and on with no problem (sent from the heavens because we can not paint and I really, really wanted a chalk board wall..and this comes right off!)
Next I'm going to work on the reading nook and art nook. So many nooks!
