Some days, I am honestly surprised by what Joash shows he knows. I don't want to make it out like he is genius or anything. I mean, what do I know. Maybe all two year olds do this. Today he showed that he can recognize the letter "J," which is a good one to start with when your name is Joash.
His big thing lately is sorting things by color. He may not be able to actually name the colour he is sorting, but he can tell that those things go together. Orange is his best colour for naming correctly. Usually his first guess is always red. But here are some sorting examples.
All of the blue letters go together on the fridge.
All of the red beads fit nicely in this wagon. (and a nice cheesy smile)
And all of the blue beads fit well in the gravity flow wagon.
Again, he did all of the sorting by himself. Usually I come into the toy room after he has been playing for while and find different blocks or beads sorted in different ways depending on color and sometimes on shape as well. I just love seeing his little mind grow, develop and learn.
