Stinky Found Her Rocking Chair
This rocking chair has been in Stinky's room since she was born, but recently she noticed it. The mind of child and how they learn about the environment around them is amazing to watch. An adult would look at that chair and say, "Oh something to sit down on." But through new eyes it's function has yet to be learned and tested. First she spent sometime figuring out how to get onto the chair. Her climbing has preceded walking; couch climbing, chair climbing, bath tube climbing, nothing is safe. Once on the chair she wiggled a little, Hmmmmm it rocks she thought. She spent some time rocking and with the attention span of a 14 month old she was quickly ready to find out what else the chair can do. She went from sitting to standing and wow is the view better up there. Then she tested a theory. If it rocks when I sit will it rock when I stand. And it did. The rocking is even better up here she thought. Her newest favorite activity rock'n in the rock'n chair.
