Sam at 6 months | Ben at 9 months
I just asked Sam how many Hershey kisses our friend Holly could have – he couldn’t see how many I had in my hand. He said “Two?” Then paused and considered. Then “Do we have FOOUUUR?” with a look of real interest. It reminded me of a time when he was about 2 1/2 and was having an ice cream sandwich. I was trying to get him to give it back so he wouldn’t wolf the whole thing down. It was a huge HUGE cookie sandwich so I said “how about 2 more bites since you’re TWO?” and he said very quickly – “how about 3 more since I’m almost THREE?” Good negotiator, particularly when treats are involved!
