E was out for a walk with me today and enjoying the frost he could see on things. We came across a puddle and I picked a piece up and handed it to him. He told me it was cold! This was very impressive and great to hear as his speech has taken a sudden boost in development.
We talked about the bubbles we could see in it and the dirt trapped in it. He didn’t want to put the ice down even though it must have been very uncomfortable on his fingers. Even as it melted in his hand. I told him he was warming it up and so it was melting and turning back in to water!
