We've had blocks around since Janey was born, but I think today was the first day she ever noticed them. She has been building structures on the windowsill all day long, including houses with roofs and what she calls stations, and "big buildings". Just now she came over to me and said excitedly "You made a big building, Janey!" and was obviously eager for me to look at it. I got a picture of her pointing it out. It's wonderful to see her engaged like that. I have to use every ounce of self-restraint not to build with her, as I know that will be the end of it---it would set her off crying. I think I will try to get the boys to build with her tonight, as that seems to be more acceptable to her.
