Double Double

A quickie post to commemorate the fact that my children are, for the only time in their lives, exactly twice as old as each other. 1.5, 3, and 6. We had a little photoshoot in which there was always at least someone not cooperating.

This picture reminds me of their Uncle Ross, who had a no-teeth smile for all his elementary school pictures.

These two do SO much climbing these days. Tabitha spends at least half an hour in a tree each day.

Yes, Tobiah is 18 months old now.


He says single words: No, More, Down, Drop, Done, Up, Belbutton, Mouth, Door, Nurse, Ball, Duck, Mama, Dadda, Bye. He seems to understand simple Tok Pisin and his first Tok Pisin word is “gras” (hair).  He is a speedy walker and wishes he could climb trees like his sisters. He likes to play ring-around-the-rosie or any game that involves spinning. He loves to stare at bugs and caterpillars and to show them to other people with a big “OH!” Sticks and rocks are his favorite toys.

Tobiah down looking for stones and the girls up climbing something is pretty typical these days!

    That’s fantastic! All the climbing. That was my childhood for sure. Also I love Tabitha’s hair so much.
