Yesterday Noah called me to look at his "collection" - everything he could find in the kitchen had been put in a carrier bag on the floor - there was a bag with Isaac's leaking cup, another with a flower pot from the garden, one with the food we were going to have for tea and all the Easter eggs stuffed into another.He has also invented a new method of restraining himself at meal times - just stretch your t-shirt over the chair!
This morning Noah showed a lovely example of his concrete thinking. He was in our bed and Paul rather affectionately called him "you funny old thing" Noah said "I am a boy not a 'thing' and I am not old. You are wrong two times dad."
Not to be outdone Isaac showed me how his language is progressing. I gave him his breakfast (usually a high calorie mixture of Weetbix, nutella, pediasure powder, cream and a slurp of iron medicine) and said 'Oh dear I forgot the iron' Isaac started growling and I was a bit puzzled until I realised he was signing 'lion'!
