Booni will be elven months at the end of this month and I still can’t get over how different Vin was as a baby of the same age.
I look at him and wonder if babies are meant to be the way Booni is, or if they’re meant to be the way Vin was. By the way, I do realise there’s no right or wrong answer here.
By this age (yes, I’m going to compare again), Vin showed a strong interest in animals and books.
Booni… Booni is like a cross between an excitable (and extremely loveable) puppy and a hungry hamster. Booni actually sounds like a puppy dog’s name!
There’s a shelf in the playroom which holds all the boxes of games and puzzles. Booni loves to crawl up to it, pull himself into standing and either:
a. pull boxes down one by one, or
b. chew the corner of one particular box.
He’s got a whole bunch of toys. He usually picks one up, looks at it, puts it in his mouth and then throws it behind him. And he repeats this four or five times!
If there are clothes in the laundry basket, he removes each item and chucks it on the floor.
If there’s anything on the bed, he’ll reach for it and throw it on the floor.
Whatever he can reach ends up on the floor!
I remembered writing a post about Vins might be when he grows up and although he was much older when I wrote it, I started wondering about Booni.
And I could only think of two things that he (Booni) might be when he’s older.
1. A professional food taster (since he loves to chew things and just eat in general).
2. A waiter in a Greek restaurant – where he can smash all the plates he likes every day!
