Becca continues to amaze me with the motor skills she has developed much earlier than her brothers. I contribute it to a mix of the fact that she is a girl (and girls tend to be more coordinated toddles) and the fact that she sees her brothers do amazing things and doesn't want to be left out. One of the skills she figured out completely on her own was how to use scissors. She asked to cut one day while I was working on a project and cutting some things out. I gave her some paper and the scissors and thought I'd see what she could do before I stepped in to help. All by herself, she showed me her skills.
1. Use two hands to pull the scissors apart.
2. Stick the fingers from one hand into the holes.
3. Add the paper and cut!
