How Things Work

Kate has shown typical toddler fascination about how things work. She can watch something done a few times and duplicate it. Last Sunday, we went to get her from the 12-18m nursery after Sunday School and a friend from our home group was watching her. As he handed her over, he told us that she had figured out how the door handles worked and proceeded to open and close the door enough times they had to employ the door locks. It's the sort of handle that is common in offices and nurseries, but Kate has never seen one apart from that particular church we've only been attending a month. She did figure out how the TV turned on and off and how to adjust the volume and change the channel at seven months, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised...

Crazy. They must hit three months and then grow cognitively in leeps and bounds. She does have crazy hair! I have no idea how I'm going to do Evelyn's hair when she gets older. All I have experience in is curly hair.

Yeah, whenever Jay gets into the foyer due to a missing baby gate, he heads straight for the front door, stands up, and grabs the door handle. So far he hasn't managed to open it, but then I often have trouble with it myself (old, settled house= sticky doors).
