What better way to start the day?
Aunty Jen's chicken card, and a very impressive attempt indeed. I suddenly noticed he was holding the pencil correctly. He swaps from the fist hold to the pincer grip, and back again; the pincer grip is becoming more prevalent. I credit this to the stockmar crayons. There's barely a day that goes by without Rye using this beautiful crayons; and the blocks encourage Rye to hold them in pincer grip rather than fist hold. And apart from my initial attempt to correct Rye a wee while back, I haven't persisted because he's at that age where he wants to do everything himself. And mummy, "helping" when not asked for, is not appreciated at all.
A lesson for me, to be a little more trusting that Rye will work these things out, given time, love and patience.
There's that Oak Tree again :-)
