Recently, Jed has shown in a lot of interest in sewing. We started with hand sewing, he made some super cute handmade pillows but his stitches are rather loose. Not surprising, Jed is always frustrated because his motor skills can't keep up with his brain.
Then I decided he probably was up to using the sewing machine. So last week I got out some fabric and we practiced sewing along the lines. He is really amazingly good. He is very precise, just like his daddy. Ever since then, he has been sewing self-designed Christmas gifts like a mad man. They are turning out really darling, he is so proud of himself. It is fun to see him develop a new talent. He is going to be a sewing boy, just like his Uncle Eric and his daddy.
Zane takes after his big brother. When ever it's quiet for a little while, I find him hidden away in a quiet spot, perusing a book.
He looks at books like this for hours and it is intensely charming. So different from Zoe, who only recently has been able to hold still long enough to listen to a book, let alone lay around looking at one herself! My boys are my readers, for sure.
