Today Imen and I took a couple of photos of Khalid and Maryam. Khalid is getting close to four years old now, and Maryam’s recently turned two. Over the past year they’ve become real best friends, playing well together and looking after each other.
The first photo was in the morning, just after they had woken up. Maryam’s hair is usually soft and straight, but after a long night’s sleep it can be a bit messy, but she’s still very cute. We’re trying to grow it.
Maryam’s hair looks a lot better when it’s been tidied up. Khalid’s also being very cute in this photo. I asked him to say ‘Cheese’ in front of the camera, and he did a good job!
Today was also a special day for Khalid. This morning he drew his first picture with recognizable people. Although he’s been drawing lines and basic shapes for a while, today he drew something much more impressive. To be honest, I was a bit taken aback at how spontaneous the change was compared to his previous drawings. He showed me his picture this morning. ‘There’s Baba and Mama and Maryam and me’.
