It's so fun to see the kids starting to interact, with us and with each other. When they first got here, the littlest girl was curious about the others, but they pretty much ignored her. She definitely initiates interactions the most, but everyone is starting to respond. They all get along extremely well, which I know is completely abnormal, so as they get used to each other, and their new home, and start to develop a sense of themselves, and where they fit in, I'm sure the squabbling and bickering will pick up. I'm enjoying the peace for now.
|She was pulling him about, and he enjoyed it. This makes me think of a prince in his litter. He just needs a few more slaves to make it complete.|
|Playing in the curtain--hmm... Is that such a good idea?|
|It is if you've got a playmate, and Mom doesn't mind about that old curtain, anyway.|
|They chased each other round and round, in and about the curtain for at least fifteen minutes, laughing those full-bodied, throaty giggles that I love.|
After a meal, everyone is usually in a pretty good mood, and our boy is no exception. He toddled over to the couch, climbed up on it, and smiled at me. I was so surprised, I looked around like, "Who? Me?" Then I grabbed my camera. Do you think he's starting to get the idea about posing, also?
Later that day, here's the scene I came across. I thought, "parallel play," until I saw Little Girl put a little something (imaginary) on Big Girl's plate. Not surprising, since she usually initiates play.
|"Try this! It's delicious."|
But then I saw this...
|"Why, thank you! Would you like a little of mine? It's quite good, as well."|
