Ben's play has changed. He has, for the last year or so busied himself with exploration and experimentation. This past week has found him more actively "playing" with the toys around him, specifically "pretend" play. He is playing with his little people castle, ship and bus as well as showing an interest in capes and acting out stories involving his cars (100% of these stories involve Daddy going to work). It is so entertaining to watch and in the last few weeks his vocabulary has almost doubled. I love listening to him!
