We went to the garden with my friend Angie and her son Nico, who is a little younger than Flora. They are good buddies and very cute together.
Nico was tired today and slept through the first part of our visit so Flora checked out the waterfall by herself.
Then she watched the ducks. There were lots of ducklings today and that was exciting but you could tell that Flora wanted her friend to wakeup.
Nico did eventually wake up but he remained drowsy for a while. Flora on the other hand, had plenty of energy. She decided to run some laps.
Being spring, there were plenty of babies. The goslings were fun to watch but we were careful to keep our distance for fear of making mama goose mad!
Did I mention the geese aren't the only one's having babies? Nico is going to have a baby brother soon!
Flora was too busy having fun to hang out with me but I did snag her for one picture.
Flora and Nico have an interesting dynamic. Nico constantly wants Flora to chase him and trow balls. Flora on the other hand, wants to hold Nico's hand, put her arm around him and exchange small gifts. It's really funny to watch. I guess that's the difference between boys and girls. Despite their differences they are crazy about one another. Flora talks about Nico when he's not around and Nico's face lights up every time he sees her. Here is Flora attempting to put her arm around Nico. He is not interested. My favorite part is right after Nico makes his escape and, Flora crosses her little arms and makes her mad face. So funny! The anger didn't last long, they chased each other a little right after this.
Do you think the differences in how Flora and Nico want to play should be attributed to gender or individual personality?
