I found a new activity for Noah to work on his fine motor skills. I give him some beads in a bowl and have him put them on a pipe cleaner. It's amazing to watch the concentration is takes for him to make it happen.
He squats down and just stays there quietly until he gets all the beads on the pipe cleaner. He seems quite proud of himself when he's finished.
What makes it even more fun is when I wrap it around his wrist like a bracelet. He really wanted to show one to Daddy this particular day, but Daddy was at work. So we took a picture to send him. Thank you camera phones and texting.
