Henry is just past 15 months now. He doesn't say anything intelligible, but he babbles a lot and chats on the telephone. He uses a few signs in makaton-type sign language to get what he wants. He's starting to walk a bit more, but we're not ready to invest in shoes for him yet. He also knows how to use the remote control to turn the TV on, and likes to watch and play videos on youtube. Is there a pattern?

Interesting walk this Sunday to a Country Park located at the end of Birmingham International Airport. Not as much joy for me, and the youngest was more surprised, but the two eldest boys were quite excited. Loud, penetrating rumbling as the discount airliners passed directly overhead.

They all like to dance at this age, don't they? Henry has figured out that squeezing the different limbs will play different sounds and songs. The cold weather means there's more time for dancing!

And, sad to say, this is the best picture I have of George's birthday party at the Steam Railway Station. The 3rd gen. train cake was worth it(no pics of that either!), and I think the kids were happy. George was happy too, after getting over some of his shyness.

This is the new combined site for George and Henry. Many updates are about both of them now so I think this will be more efficient - especially for the host!
