I love how these kids keep changing. I love how because they are constantly changing you cannot label them. If we had labelled our kids when they were little, Sausage would have been the reserved shy and scared child and Pudding would have been the friendly, smiley child. Pudding was the first of our two to smile. Her little face would light up so brightly with her smiles, especially for her Daddy. Poor Sausage was so weary of strange (new) men after his stay in the hospital. He seemed to associate the whole horrid experience with our paed and decided that all men were awful. He would even scream if Chris’ dad held him.
And then as they do they changed.
Sausage came out his shell. Sausage is a real easy going very friendly little chap. He is especially taken with women, especially young women and especially young blonde women. At a wedding a few months back he walked up to a girl (probably around 18) and felt her legs (she was wearing a very short skirt). She laughed and called him a Baby Pervert and his Daddy told him to do as much of that sort of thing as possible while he can still get away with it. And the girls love him. Must be those big brown eyes that look at you as though you are the centre of the whole world and just beg you to adore him. He really is my little lover boy. He will offer kissies to almost anyone and cuddles are always welcome. And when we go out to those kids play areas you will always see one of the older girls carrying my boy around or holding his hand. He has a wicked sense of humour and loves to act for us. He will pretend to sit on his little stool and then ‘fall’ off, we have to say “oh no, are you alright” and he will do it over and over again. He will walk along and then splat onto his face (pretend trip) and we make a fuss and he will grin a cheeky grin and do it over and over and over. He really is a little comedian. He also loves to tickle his sister and he is just about the only person who can get her to giggle. I just love the way he brings out her happy side (when they aren’t fighting).
And with the passage of time, Pudding has become more reserved. She takes a while to check out new people and decide whether they are okay. She will watch a new person for ages before talking to them or allowing them to hold her. It all seemed to happen around their birthday when my whole family arrive en mass for the party and I think it was just too much for her. She became quite “ma vas” (tied to Mommy’s apron strings) and while this has eased up, she has remained quite a mommy’s girl (which of course I love!). Her smiles would light the world, but you have to work for them. Daddy can still get her to smile quite easily, and Sausage, but everyone else has to earn her smiles.
And then all of a sudden in the last few days my little girl has just come alive. She has a new spring in her step and giggles and smiles and gets this naughty little grin and dances and did I mention giggles! OMG it is so awesome to see this transformation. She teases when you ask for a kiss and pretends to say ‘no’ but them comes back wanting you to chase her to ‘steal’ kisses.
Here are my two loving each other up!
