I am one of those people who always overestimates how much she can handle physically.
I'm always certain that I can carry more groceries than I am able, or can lift a piece of furniture twice my size. I'm really stubborn, and this gets me pretty far. But sometimes you just have to realize your physical limitations.
One of the things Jordan is just starting to understand is that you can't hold everything you own in your two hands at the same time. Until recently he'd have both hands full, then try to pick up another toy, thus dropping one of the first ones. So he'd pick that up, start over, drop a different one...
This could continue for quite some time.
But on our trip, I saw the first glimpse of realization that he has two little hands, and thus can pretty much pick up two sizeable things - one in each.
He was eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with one hand and holding a car in another. And then he spotted his favorite ambulance. Must pick it up!
He looked down at one hand and then another. And then tucked his PB&J under his arm for safe keeping.
