. A few weeks ago I spent an absolutely glorious morning with a sweet 2 1/2 year old - that is two AND A HALF. That "half" is very important when you are said two year old.
I met sweet Kenzie and her grandmother at a local park early in the morning. The sun was shining and Kenzie was smiling and talking like crazy. Some may think two year olds can be "terrible", but I think they are terrific and really miss some of those days with my own little ones. They just grow up too fast....
One thing I know about two year AND A HALF year olds is that their attention span is also about 2, about 2 minutes that is. So I try to keep the session moving along and as interesting as possible. For Kenzie's session I brought bubbles, blocks, Barney stickers, a crate, a blanket and goldfish! (Hey, you never know what will appeal to a little one!) Kenzie's grandmother also brought bubbles along with books! And we successfully kept sweet Kenzie happily traipsing throughout the park for a good hour or so!
We started at the bridge - looking for fishies!
And soon we brought out the bubbles!
The crate and the books were fun for a bit.
And we then headed over to the playground!
I even tried a quick rendition of "Five little monkeys jumped on the bed, one fell off and bumped his head!"
And ended the session with a few minutes with the blocks on the blanket.
It was so much fun hanging with little Kenzie for the day. I am sure you can tell from her photos, that she is quite the character!!! Thanks sweetie-pie!!! Hope to see you again!!!
