They're both growing and learning... that process is an important business for little people. For Benett it means learning how to get a reaction out of those around him. He must be on a Master's course, because he's getting pretty good at it.
Ellie is learning more about her physical surroundings... she gets around so well, and is sure-footed enough to almost run. (Life with two big brothers is just cause for learning to get out of the way quickly.) Elle doesn't talk much, but I know she understands a lot of what's being asked of her. She seems to just soak up her surroundings... taking it all in... digesting the goings-on and trying to figure out how she can use that information another time.
The learning and growing is fun to watch. It's a noisy environment. It's a happy environment.
These two are so different, but one thing they have in common is joy of reading. I just had no idea that they enjoyed reading so much that they'd even tolerate a shared seat to peacefully read to each other. Ellie would point to the picture and Benett would tell the story. (Using real words, for the most part.)
It was a short lived scene, but fun to watch. And one that I hope to see again soon.
