Bella has gotten the hang of her fine motor skills much earlier than her older sister did (unless my memory is failing me-I can't believe how easy it is to forget things like this-good thing I have a blog to record it). I'm totally impressed when she stacks the rings and puts shapes through the shape sorter. I remember sitting with Addie showing her very carefully how to do each of these toys. I haven't sat with Bella nearly as much (the second child's lot in life I guess), but sure enough she knows how to do it all by herself. Here she is stacking some cups.
