Here is more of Jamie’s recent art work from preschool…

If you look closely near the top of the apple, you can see that Jamie added his own special touch to this one — part of a Cheerio. I am pretty sure that part was all him, and not his teacher. Jamie likes to share Cheerios. ūüôā

“I¬†think¬†I am a muffin man,

I haven’t got a bell,

I haven’t got the muffin things that muffin people sell…

So…Round about and round about and round about I go,¬†

All around the table, the table in the nursery…

Round about and¬†round about and round about¬†I¬†go…¬†”

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† — A. A. Milne

Let me preface by saying that I already believe Jamie is a gifted child.

I often find “artwork” in his folder at preschool to be sent home. I am always delighted to receive it.

But, er…which part of this am I¬†expected¬†to believe my nine-month-old son constructed?

??????????????????????????

Not bad for someone who can’t even use a spoon.

Jamie discovered the joys of¬†playing with kitchenware¬†this weekend. He crawled into the kitchen to watch Pop-Pop making green beans on the stove. We gave him his own pot and spoon, and he just kept his eyes on Pop-Pop, practicing stirring just like he did.¬†Jamie is a natural chef!¬†He kept wanting to put things into his pot and practice stirring, though, instead of actually banging like most toddlers do, though, so we had a sad casualty as¬†dear Lamb Chop became an ingredient…poor Lamb Chop. She was a sweet little lamb. Hmmm. Maybe the lamb stew will be sweet as well…
