Imaginative play

Calvin is getting so imaginative with his play - it's delightful to watch. Today as I type, he is playing with his train set. He knows all of the Thomas characters from the books we read him, and he is imagining Sir Topham Hatt directing his railway. He's also playing with the cargo part of the train set, moving little balls up a ramp by turning a crank, and watching them go down and into the freight car. He is telling them "please" and "thank you" as they go up and down. Too cute! It's past the start of nap time, but he is so absorbed that I hate to make him take a nap.

I love it! It's so fun to watch the imagination at work. Alex is getting more creative too. She loves to make little beds for her animals and dolls, and tells me when they are "sad" or "happy." Yesterday she used my yoga mat and a couch pillow to make another bed for her babies. She likes to name them too - "baby Lena" and my favorite, "Baby Lettuce." :-)
