Four Cups


This morning, Emily spent over half an hour playing with these four cups.
She singled them out from the rest of the set and focused on just these four.
I sat quietly and watched her play.

She learnt that
Cup 1 fits into Cups 2, 3, and 4.
Cup 2 only fits into Cups 3 and 4.
Cup 3 doesn't fit into Cup 1.
It doesn't fit into Cup 2 either, no matter how hard you try.
Cup 1 can even go into Cup 4 upside down.
None of the cups fit into each other sideways.
Cup 4 is big enough to pretend you're drinking out of it.
Cup 1 is small enough to lick the entire inside of.
All the cups are good for biting.
They are also excellent to bang against each other.

So much to discover!


  1. It's so much fun observing them discovering new things! You can almost see their little minds working out how things work :)

  2. :))) wow...clever little girly takes after her very clever parents:) hugs. Mx

  3. The power of stacking cups! E love his too, especially the banging together and putting them inside each other. Hope you are all well, Lx

  4. That's so sweet, it's lovely to watch them playing and learning. K has the same set of cups!

    1. I'm not sure how keen I am about these cups... they don't stack very easily. How do you find yours? x

  5. What an adorable way to document your baby girl's life :) xxx

    1. Thank you! I like to think she'll enjoy reading it too one day :) xxx
