No, thank you!

13 Feb

Castor is saying more and more (up, down, more, no, horse, fish, etc). My favorite new edition to his vocabulary is “Thank You!”, identifiable more by tone and context then the actual phonics. Here’s hoping that one sticks!

Castor is also expert enough in his climbing that the chairs in our dining room can’t stay at the table. If we forget, he is there in a heartbeat, throwing our food, Moon’s homework, and whatever else he finds to the floor.

Pollux is content with his vocabulary of animal noises. “Moo!” “Baa!” “Hoo!” “Caw!” “Roar!” get us through our day, with lots of time spent on books like “Who says Moo?” and “Dear Zoo”.

Pollux is a great physical mimic; he kicks balls, attempts rolls, and is fascinated when Moon practices her Kung-Fu. It’s been impressive to see what he can accomplish.

And much to her delight, they both say, “Moon!”. They would happily follow her anywhere. If I was ever the subject of such adoration from my younger sibling, I did not deserve it.
