Baby E is now 7 months old. S has taken well to being a big brother. He loves to greet her when we pick him up from nursery and enjoys making her laugh. E is much more vocal that S was at this age, making no attempt to roll or crawl. I have a feeling she’ll talk well before S did. They have different characters, E is calmer and more content, and all the sitting down and playing means she’s had a lot of practice using her hands. She now bangs together two blocks and is getting good at picking up smaller items.
So far S continues to talk to her in Spanish most of the time. It’ll be interesting to see how their relationship develops and how it affects their language use as they grow up.
