We have two maps in our house: a world map and a United States map. Our family lives all over the place so I have laminated pictures of them and we place their pictures on the map. We use this as a way to remember to pray for our family and as a way for J and M to stay connected with the family they don't see everyday. M is recently in to everything and I realized that the United States map is right at his level. Not brilliant planning on my part but what can I do since it was the only place it fit.M was told numerous times to not pull the pictures off the map. I was getting rather frustrated but then about wet myself laughing when I turned around and found him with a picture of his Aunt and Uncle stuck to his head and him looking around really confused. I guess his object permanence is fully developed. J eventually went over and took the picture off and we all had a good laugh.
J and M are starting to move into a stage where they can sort of "play" together. The other day they were working "together" to move a tub of clothes back and forth between the kitchen and living room. I had to keep reminding J to move a bit slower and not plow M over but they actually did a really great job and I think they had an awesome time.
