Strawberry milk and climbing fences

OK, naff all interesting happening so its time for a (drumroll...) Bs update!

B1 is being super sweet at the moment, really well behaved and loving. Unfortunately the one thing that sends her a bit doolally and uncontrollable is seeing other people, so she often gives the opposite impression when she's with friends or family. M&I are working on this behaviour but it will probably be a long journey.

Her numbers and letters are developing slowly but surely, and her creative skills are amazing (all from her mum I'm sure). She's into pink milk, Disney princesses and riding her bike.

B2 is very much the sporty type. He loves charging around the place and roaring, kicking balls and climbing fences. His language is less developed than B1 was at the same age, but still well within the normal range I think. He is also ridiculously cute.

Barrington Tops

Barrington Tops really is a lovely area. The Bs showed great forbearance towards their parents as we drove around looking at spectacular views and finally using the 4WD for what is is designed to do. In return we stayed at a very kid-friendly resort for a few days and allowed them to run around with other children and play in a river. Seems fair.
