Bouncy, bouncy

Adelle’s discovered something new. Well, she actually chanced upon it yesterday. She was looking through my wife’s pencil case and she found a rubber (or eraser, whichever you prefer), and kids being kids, she threw it. Lo and behold! It bounced when it hit the floor. She was so intrigued by it that she kept taking it and throwing it, giggling throughout the process. Of course, this was great amusement to both Mommy and Daddy as well.

And in the early part of today, and sometime in the afternoon as well, she continued her ‘scientific’ study of the bouncing properties of that piece of rubber. She’s even discovered that throwing from a higher place will result in more bounce! How’s that for a little scientist?

Experiment in progress

The rubber in question

From my earlier post about Adelle learning phonics, we try to reinforce what she’s learned by sticking letters to the fridge. Every time mommy or Daddy or she takes a letter, either my wife or I’ll say the sound of the letter then she’ll follow soon enough. We’re also trying to teacher her the numbers 1 to 10. So far, she’s doing quite well with this. She can count, “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 10!”.

It’s a start, isn’t it? :-)

"Now, is that a letter or a number...hmmm"

"Daddee!! Adelle clever girl!"

I dunno. Will give it a try...OUTSIDE the house. :)
