It seems ages since we last saw Lucas and his mom. Lucas is, I think, a mere two weeks younger than Sam and he was one of Sam’s first friends. We went to the New Parents’ Group this morning and very pleased to see they had resurfaced. When we last saw Lucas he wasn’t crawling but today he showed that he had caught up in a flash. He was all over the place doing a very amusing version of a three legged crawl.
He also got his own back on Sam today. For months poor Lucas has been terrorised by both Sam and Presley as they stole his toys and walked all over him, literally. Today, he crawled over to Sam and gave him a good slap in the face, making my little lad cry and need mummy cuddles.
Alyssa sooncame down on him over that one. I was so surprised and startled. It’s so hard not to laugh when they do things like that because at this age it all looks so cute and amazing that they are testing their boundaries when only a few short months ago they could barely do anything for themselves at all. It’s also hard to know how to berate when you don’t know what they really understand.
Soon enough though it was all smiles and the boys were playing happily again.
