It was a good thing, in the event, that Victoria had a sound sleep this morning. She woke up 10 mins before Tina arrived, drank her milk and then she was straight to work. Well, truth to tell, she just was sitting but that is tiring. She had a go at banging a tambourine (actually, she preferred to use her fingers to rattle the silver jangly bits), rattling maracas (she did pretty well at letting go of one in order to take another one and also at figuring how to take hold, in her left hand, of one from off the floor while her right hand was already grasping the other one). Then there were small things to be lifted out of a container which was too heavy for her to pick up and invert - that was a novel experience.
the things we will be practicing before the end of April, when she comes again, will be 1) letting go of things or handing them over to someone
2) taking things out of different sizes of container
3) exploring things of different textures (other than plastic!!).
anyway, by the end of the visit, poor old Victoria was all done in (actually, so was I!) and went to bed early (maybe I should try that too.....).
