Catching up and overtaking

Today Wotsit is 2 years, 9 months and 1 day old.  He is exactly the same age as Monkey was when he died.  He is so like his big brother in looks and cheekiness but not temper.  Monkey was content and undemanding and I don't believe that was due to his disability; that was his character.  Wotsit is feisty and occassionally stroppy but with a wicked sense of humour.  They both love(d) cuddles. 

Wotsit talks about Monkey now.  He's learnt from Pickle mostly.  He'll tell you Monkey died in a swimming pool.  It took us a while to realise he thought we'd said Monkey had 'dived'.  And he cuddles Monkey's monkey.

So he's caught his biggest brother up in age and is about to overtake.  Irrationally, I'll be checking on him later just to make sure.

  1. I don't think you are being irrational - just a mum who has gone through every mums worst fear, the death of your child.

    Your posts are aways so moving, and humbling.

    Thankyou for sharing them

    May the next few days also have warm memories for you too...
