22 and 4



Our gorgeous Reuben, at 22 months you now:



Have a brilliant memory, signing all 26 words from Apple to Zebra without prompt
Have an expressive vocabulary of about 200 ASL signs
Lovingly look after your big little brother
Have had your first real happy day at school
Love to put lids back on bottles and jars
Have had many successes on the potty
Walk 8 independent steps
Play beautiful tunes on the red piano

*

Our beautiful Callum, at 4 months you now:


Chuckle when I tickle your toes, your tummy, under your arms and it's so gorgeously exciting to hear
Laugh out loud
Cry with real tears
Love to weight bear on your legs and can stand supported
Lift your chest high when lying face down so I can see your belly button
Stuff your hands in your mouth after a meal making yourself sick
Move your head to the direction of sound, left or right, with only a mere hint of a bob
Have had a first taste of rice and were not very impressed, but love pureed carrots and guava
Are in ecstasy in the bath, kicking away at the duck between your toes
Love to hang onto mama's brown, curly, hair and tangle it in your hands
Like to play with your toys hanging from the arch of the playmat
Weigh 17lbs

*

Make each other laugh
