At 4 months and 35 months, both kids are enjoying a surprising amount of independent play. Reid likes just about anything he can fit in his small(ish) hands and Lucy likes to stack things, making legos a recent hit. She also loves building playgrounds (known to the rest of the world as forts), throwing balls, lining up rocks, playing in the water (at the sink, in the bath, from the snow), and doing puzzles. They both have a moderate respect for reading. And of course being chased and tickled is probably the all time favorite around here.
