Third time is a Charm

We finally were able to attend a storytime at the Library. Elianna headed right for the Doll House and proceeded to give every doll a bath again. Well it had been a week! But this time she added a step to each bath. She pretended to wipe off the face of each doll when she took it out of the bathtub.

When the Librarian arrived with the special "Story Time Key" to open the door, Elianna was more than ready to go in. She sat and listened very well to two books. Panda Bear, Panda Bear and Knick, knack, Paddywack, In between she started singing and doing fingerplays. Elianna went into observation mode and eventually joined in doing some of the motions. She kept turning around and giving me her happy smile. I knew she was having a good time. Afterwards the librarian put a small sticker on her hand. She thought that was way cool.

As everyone filed out of the room the librarian mentioned a pair of killdeer were making a nest by the window. The birds just paced back and forth on the sill and didn't even fly away. Elianna watched those birds for more than 20 minutes. All the other children only watched for about 5 minutes. I had to drag her away so we could leave.
