James isn't any closer to walking, but he loves to hold on to anyone's fingers and cruise around. Because his hands are occupied, he will use his foot and big toe to point out things or play with toys.
Matthew didn't come home with any new tricks, but I think he aged about a year. He has now started referring to me as "Knuckle-Mom," which I believe to be a derivative of "knucklehead."
James must eat with a fork now or he isn't happy. He can't actually fork the food himself, so mealtime has become a lot more demanding.
The boys are starting to really enjoy each other. Well, maybe it's not that new. They did have good times, like this. They were playing on this tunnel and James got excited when he came out of it and could see Matthew. I love the pointing.
Matthew really is a happy kid. Promise. You try to get him to smile for a picture.
