We've really been enjoying the library in Denver lately. Emily & I have attended "Toddler Time" a couple times now. Unfortunately, it's at the same time as the Mom's Morning Out program at our church on Friday mornings, but we can catch it once in a while when there is no MMO. Toddler Time is a 30 min. program geared for ages 1-3 that is a shorter, more active version of story hour. There are about 8-10 kids that attend. It's a great way to introduce and practice social skills that I can't possibly teach at home such as following some else's instructions, participating in structured group activities, walking in a line, etc. as well as using/playing with a variety of objects and materials. Plus I get a chance to meet some other moms from Denver! There are three of us due to have babies within 3 months of each other. Needless to say, we didn't have to squat down to pretend to waddle like a duck this week. ;o)
Today the library put on a program to celebrate Dr. Suess' birthday, so we decided to check it out as family. Here is our morning in pictures:
Coloring a Cat in the Hat hat and other pictures
Emily modeling her hat at home
Not sure what to think of the Cat in the Hat
Decked out in full rain gear (can you tell she loves her new umbrella?!?)
They were showing the movie Horton Hears a Who and had other older/messier crafts in another room, but we had fun doing our own thing. Since it was such a rainy, dreary day we went home and all caught up on some much needed rest after lunch. Yay for relaxing weekends!
