This morning Benjie disappeared downstairs to continue work on a railway track, and Isaac lay in bed chatting and singing in the dark until I went and got him up. They then played peacefully for the rest of the day. I asked Benjie mid-morning if he wanted to go out for a bike ride but he said he just wanted to stay and play all day. J and D came to visit in the afternoon and Benjie and J built a zoo with the bricks and ark animals.
I weighed Joel today. He has reached the 25th centile. Still a long way to go, but at least heading in the right direction! He’s being such a Daddy’s boy, very much as Benjie was. He bounces with excitement when Matt comes home and crumples if he goes out of the room.
Benjie was looking at a picture of a goods train today and said the truck contained “gravel – for making gravity boots” !!
