With your first child, you look for any little changes, a new word, standing upright unaided for the first time etc. These things happen over a period of weeks, months or years.
With your second child these things happen, or at least, seem to happen much faster.
Annabel’s vocabulary is amazing. I can’t sit on the fence with this one and at the risk of “gushing”, it really is amazing.
Obviously she has an older sibling around all the time (which of course your first born doesn’t have) and so, through copying Joseph’s actions and speech, the rate at which she is “coming along” is remarkably noticeable.
Good old Poops. He’s teaching his little sister every day and he doesn’t even know it.
