Jacob's creativity is starting to blossom.

Today I was upstairs changing Drew. When I came downstairs, Jacob was sitting on the kitchen counter with his "school box" of supplies. This box is filled with glue, tape, pencils, and rulers mostly supplies bought by my cute aunt Mary. He had also gathered a fun assortment of random things getting ready to glue onto a scrap of paper. His favorite skill right now is gluing things. He will always ask, "Can that be glued?" For example, we where hanging his latest art project in his room to his magnet board when he asked, "Mom can I glue it to the wall?" I am hoping I never have to clean that up. Another example my mom gave Jacob a plastic fire fighter hat, and when it had gotten a crack in it, Jacob asked, "Can I fix it with glue?" We decided that tape would work better. He did a great repair job!
I had asked Jacob why he decided to do this project
on the counter and his reply was, "Andrew can't get it".
Isn't that AWESOME! This is my favorite Jacob art project yet. --emily

Glue is very fun! And as long as he doesn't get his hands on "grown up glue" anything he glues to the walls with elmers varieties washes off easily...yes, I know that from experience!
