Nathanael has quite the imagination.
He has made planes by holding two blocks cross-wise. He makes trains out of sippy bottles.
Recently, he stacked a triangular block on a rectangular block, and exclaimed, "Boat!"
He "cooks" things - he stirs in pots and pours tea (with E's tea set when he can steal it from her), and brings a spoonful of pretend soup to us to eat. He makes slurping and eating noises.
It's delightful for me to see this in action. Elizabeth's imagination at a similar age was different. Her pretend play was much more relational - playing with stuffed animals, playing ball, coloring, dancing and other interactive activities.
Nathanael likes to interact, too, but his independent play if much different.
Such a cute and funny little guy!
