New Skills

Our rapidly developing children have added some new tricks to their respective repertoires. Maria, in a truly exciting new development, has learned to use the toilet without any assistance whatsoever. Start to finish, she is on her own.

Thomas, meanwhile, at a slightly earlier stage of development, has mastered the art of rolling over from back to front - a much more difficult feat than rolling from front to back. Here he is in action:

Happy Father's Day to you, John.

You called Thomas Maria's "little brother" - that's not going to last much longer! He will have to start being referred to as "younger brother". They both look so sweet! We are counting down the days... 123
