Another game Claire and I play with Evie, in addition to blowing raspberries, is gesturing to her to poke her tongue out. It didn’t take Evie very long to realise what we were on about and she began poking her tongue out and making a little noise to go with it.
A while ago Evie realised that she could blow raspberries, however recently it has become a bit of a game we play together – we blow a few raspberries, she laughs and then starts blowing raspberries back at us – hilarious!
Hugo loves to help Claire when she is cooking, he stands up on a chair and mixes ingredients together, passes different utensils around and generally has a blast.
One thing Hugo loves more than assisting with the cooking process itself, is eating the fruits of its labour – sometimes before the cooking is even complete. When Claire bakes Jude’s kiwi crisps, which have dark chocolate in them – we will without a doubt hear ‘little taste’ from Hugo as he gestures towards the diced chocolate.
On this particular afternoon, Hugo had finished eating his dinner and Claire had been cooking. I don’t remember what it was precisely, however we thought Hugo might like to try his hand at licking a beater – raging success!
