Two S's in that Sign!

This past week Liam has been showing that he can recognize some letters and numbers. He noticed that there were two S's next to each other in one sign and another time, he recognized the number 7 in a highway sign. So cool!

Creative Creature

Liam's artistic and creative talents have really blossomed in the past few weeks. He has really taken to drawing people and creatures - with relatively good anatomic detail. He even draws whole imaginative scenes, such as a man on a map who has to navigate his way through a mob of giant lobsters.

I'm taking advantage of this new interest in drawing by doing a bunch of crafty-type activities with him. Today we colored images of the planets and made the solar system. Yesterday we made a rocket out of various colored shapes. I need to come up with some more space-themed activities for the next week...

Tonight Sean and Liam spent a good 20 minutes practicing writing letters! He was getting pretty good at it. I haven't has as much luck keeping his interest with writing, but I am glad that he can connect with daddy on this. :)
