Little Satie is becoming more and more interested in all aspects of her surroundings. She frequently takes the time to study the minutest details of a toy or a book, quietly studying the item with a fierce concentration.
This week she discovered the wonder of nesting dolls. The first set she encountered was a set of five. She smiled and studied the odd-looking wooden doll, but was not prepared for the surprise inside.
When the first doll was opened to reveal the smaller doll within, she gasped and looked at her mum in absolute amazement. The revelation of each subsequent doll elicited a giggle, combined with a handclap, and an exclamation of “Yay!!”
Watching her with the set of ten dolls was even more amusing, as they are both larger and subsequently smaller than the set of five.
With the larger set, she knew what to expect, and yet was completely taken aback by smallest doll and its one inch stature. This whole set earned a hearty “yay!” and handclap after each doll was opened.
Each day her parents are allowed the privilege of seeing and learning about the world through her point of view and it truly is a delightful place to be.
