I decided it was time to pull out the pots and pans and wooden spoons so Catie could have a go.
It took her some time to figure out that you can do more with the wooden spoon than put it in your mouth. I felt like she was just starting to get it when she fell over with a spoon in her mouth. She was not happy and cried for some time after. Perhaps we'll give it some time and try again.
Our friends loaned us this great little kiddy pool so we tried it out. We filled the pool with warm water and then hooked up the hose, she was freezing almost immediately so we killed the hose and left the warm water. She had a great time with lots of splashing.
