Jack figured out the shape sorter! I bought it months ago despite the 18m+ label and while he has enjoyed playing with the shapes, he only figured out that the shapes fit into the slots in the box today. It’s so cool to watch him turning the shape about to make it fit.
I think the shape sorter seems to go along with his newfound interest in putting objects into other objects. Earlier he was pushing around a laundry basket and picking things off the floor to dump into it. Then he found an empty box with which he did the same.
He’s been saying “cat” for months now, but today he picked up a stuffed animal Grandma B got him, pointed to it, and asked, “Cat?” He looked confused when I told him it was a quail.
