Yesterday our MOPS group went to May Farm for a playdate. Emily enjoyed seeing the animals and wanted to feed them, but couldn't keep her hand flat without the food rolling off. So, we compromised. She pointed to the animal she wanted to feed and I fed it.
After we fed the animals one cup of food, Emily decided she needed a snack. So, she stood and ate snacks for most of the rest of the time.
The bigger kids were getting to hold guinea pigs and rabbits and baby chicks. Emily wanted to hold a chick, too, so once a chair opened up, I got her sat down with a towel in her lap and she got to hold the chick. That was about the stillest and calmest I have seen her in a long time!
We finished off the day with a picnic with friends. It was a fun day!
