Nana and PopPop came to visit this weekend and brought this Melissa and Doug Puzzle.
I almost think I love it more than Owen does; it is absolutely perfect! First, it has several of his beloved animals (giraffe, lion) but also a few he does not know yet. The pictures are very cute and interesting, the puzzle is sturdy, but the best feature of all, in my opinion, is that the pieces are very thick! They are taller than the puzzle itself, which makes it easy to take them out but also fun to play with. I've been finding the pieces all over the house the past two days, it is such a hit! Definitely have to invest in more Melissa and Doug puzzles in the future.
...oh and the disclaimer is that this is, in fact, the only puzzle we have so I have no idea if it is the best ever ;) But I still love it!
We also did a little shopping and I was finally able to pick up some stacking cups (better late then never, right?) And I have been so pleased at how much fun Owen has with them. They are definitely easier for him than the nesting blocks he has so I think I will be on the lookout for fun things we can do with them together. Hope you had a fun weekend, we were very busy with the grandparents!
