peeling and slicing and egg. self explanatory really, but afterwards she made her own snack and placed the egg slices on crackers and gave them a small shake of salt. this was a hit! she has asked to "make eggs" twice since.
getting dressed... sounds simple enough, but as birdie gets older so does her need for self determinism, and getting her to do the things that we want her to do can be a daunting task. in a nut shell, she has been refusing to wear clothes as of late. this is something that is common with toddlers and can be a battle when needing to go somewhere. i have been putting together options for her so that she can feel like she is somewhat in control of what she wears. i give her three different outfit choices (usually a dress option, a shorts option and a pants option) she then chooses which outfit she wants to wear and i help her get dressed, with her doing most of the work. still a new exercise, but she is really enjoying it... and wearing clothes.
