Here we are building ramps and watching train cars or matchbox cars go zooming down. J-jo loves to chew our blocks and Bear likes to put the train track together like a puzzle. Sometimes I build them a big "castle" to sit inside. Bear's never been into blocks the way I was as a kid and still am. She never gravitates to them unless I pull them out first, even though they are in a prominent spot in our playroom. I find it soothing to stack blocks and make symmetrical structures while feeling the grain of the wood in my hands. I keep hoping her brother will show a little more interest.
