We’re trying to get caught up. Our system is a bit cumbersome, but it’s improving and may allow us not only to catch up, but to stay abreast. But don’t hold your breath just yet, because these videos are from the time frame of July 25, 2012, to August 8, 2012. You’d be holding your breath a while, and you’re no Guybrush.
We begin with a few videos of Vivienne. She eats some solid food, and, at another occasion, rice. The videos look all the more outdated as we have Vivienne almost creeping, and crashing as she tries to creep – she’s quite an accomplished creeper by now. She does still like to play with the water wheel.
Switching to Joseph, we have him playing with Lego while singing the States song, and singing selfsame song on the pot, with Vivienne interrupting and without. He still loves to count. He counts in the dots book, or with the numbers puzzle, with Grossvater or with Bappe. In this instance, he’s counting in Russian with Grossvater while Vivienne plays with the alphabet puzzle.
Sometimes they play together, though it’s still mostly side-by-side play, not real interaction. If Vivienne intervenes too much, Joseph gets unhappy and screeches, though in this instance he doesn’t mind.
We conclude with Vivienne laughing. Both our kids are delightfully ticklish. We’re careful not to tickle too much, though.
