Watching my two little girls playing together is so beautiful. Sophie is now very confident with sitting unsupported. This means that she can now sit down on the floor with Jessica and they can play together.
Playing with wooden blocks is a favourite activity for both. Jessica loves trying to build a tower with the blocks. She will now count as she stacks the blocks on top of each other, trying to build as tall a tower as she can. Needless to say, Sophie is very good at then knocking it down! Sometimes Jessica finds this funny, but more often than not, a little sister destroying a carefully built tower is annoying and frustrating. Thankfully there is enough room for them both to be able to sit and play with the bricks if that is the case!
Jessica also loves looking for the number on each brick. She can now count and recognise the numbers up to 30. She is also starting to be able to recognise letters. We’ve just about got the hang of colours too so coloured bricks with numbers and letters are great fun in lots of ways.
Sophie is just happy that she is able to pick the brick up. She will often examine it quite intently before testing whether it tastes good or not. She is getting more mobile this month having just started to work out how to crawl forwards as well as backwards and can now work her way across the living room floor with surprising speed!
Jessica is not always so impressed by her sister’s newfound mobility though. Whilst there are many loving moments, we are also seeing a few more moments of irritation and annoyance. On the whole though, they tend to be very good together. These little moments of sibling rivalry and jealousy are to be expected.
