Petra wants to do everything that Silas does. Everything. She won’t use a sippy cup–she wants an open cup or one with a straw, like his. She wants to play with tiny little toys like he does (and she’s gotten very good about not mouthing them, so we let her). The latest, though, is coloring.
I remember trying to get Silas interested in coloring when he was about 15 months old. He didn’t want anything to do with it. Petra loves taking the crayons out of the box and putting them in again, but she actually COLORS, too. The only thing she doesn’t love is the beautiful beeswax toddler crayons I got when Silas was that age. Those are for babies, and she knows it.
