Fine Motor Skills

Last night when giving Henry a bath I realized how much his fine motor skills have improved. He has a small fishing net that is for scooping up some floating plastic toys he has. I can now see him starting to scoop things up himself! It's a pretty amazing sight to see. This morning I was also impressed with how he correctly used two drumsticks, one in each hand, to beat on his drum. He's coming along. Let's hope his one year doctor visit goes well today!

I also searched some coin.

Late on Tuesday I got a call from a bank employee about a large stash of dollar and half dollar coins that were turned in. I went as soon as I could to get them. The stash included 263 large dollar coins, 32 small dollar coins and 340 half dollars. Unfortunately there wasn't anything good in them. :( Oh well, the thought was much appreciated. I'm certainly glad they thought of me.

5,300 pennies yielded sixty-one Wheats, forty-nine Canadians, three US dimes, one Bermuda 1¢ and one Bahamas 1¢. Included in the Wheats was one variety I hadn't found since November, 2007, the 1924. I'm not sure why it has been so elusive. The Wheats were:

1924, 1936, 1937, 1941(2), 1942(2), 1944(4), 1945(4), 1946(9), 1946S, 1947(2), 1949, 1949D, 1951D(2), 1952(3), 1952D(3), 1953(2), 1953(4), 1954, 1955(3), 1955D, 1956D(4), 1957(2), 1957D(5), 1958(2), 1958D

Found: 1 dime (outside Bank of America)

Get his feet going too, and he'll be well-set for a bass drum and hi-hat next!

That's a good idea... I'll have to try and get my Henry one too.
