Sometimes a stretch is what is needed.

We have been in a cycle of frustration with learning activities. Happens, right??? πŸ€”πŸ™πŸ˜ž

Yesterday I thought a shot at theπŸŒ™ was worth trying since we've been stuck.

Whooohooohoooooooo!!! Felt like we struck gold!!!

Just like that, smarty pants strutted out her number knowledge, identifying quantities correctly with the Numicon shapes.

Today, she again accepted the challenge.

Kicking 2020 to the curb like it's nobody's business! πŸ™ŒπŸ’ͺ#πŸ’ͺπŸ™Œ

My new favorite thing in the morning is when my gi My new favorite thing in the morning is when my girl wakes up, grabs her talker of the charging cable on her nightstand and, before even offering a greeting of "Good morning!," jumps right into what she wants to make for breakfast. 

And, if you've spent any time with her, you'd know that watching her shows on her iPad is one of her favorite things. 

So when what to make for breakfast beats an iPad show request upon waking, you have to speculate that cooking might be moving up the list. 

Pre-pandemic, I'd honestly have never considered it. We might even have a sous chef in the making!!

Crazy cool!! 😁

(Eggs. They've been a hot topic a lot around here lately. Check out that visual fixation! πŸ’ͺπŸ‘€πŸ’ͺ)

So fun!!!

Sight. It is so vital, something we absolutely tak Sight. It is so vital, something we absolutely take for granted. 

As fully sighted people, we know, because we've learned early, that a potato is a πŸ₯”.

Today we made an apple pie. And Emma heard me peeling and watched me peel apples for the pie. Cool! She took it all in. β™₯️

Tonight, I planned for us to make beef stew. 

Baking the pie has been an item that had been pushed off for a few days, but today we had the opportunity to do it.

It didn't occur to me that, as I prepped the veggies for the stew, Emma would hear the sound of me peeling the potatoes and think she could score some more 🍎. 

... because, that's what she heard today and watched as the apple skin was peeled off for the pie (we normally eat the apple with the skin on - who has time for that on the daily?!?)...

So into the kitchen she comes, peering over the ledge, looking to score apples. Then I realized that a peeled 🍎 and a peeled πŸ₯” look an awful lot alike. I tried to verbally explain that these weren't apples. Then I tried showing her the shape.

Not enough.

Cut off a piece and she popped it in her mouth. 

Crunch. Eeeiiiwww!!! What was this?!?

I had only one potato left with part of it's skin on. I showed it to her, the color, the feel, the shape. Let her smell it. On the talker, potato.... apple ... potato, potato, potato. 😁

πŸ₯” 🍎 

There's a lot that seems the same, but, oh sister! 

🍎 πŸ₯”

It will be interesting to see what happens the next time she hears me peeling. 

Will she dive in or ... ???

Stay tuned!

🍎 πŸ₯” 🍎 πŸ₯” ☺️
