Reasoning

Very gradually, over the past year, Lillian has acquired the ability to make arguments – or “play the game of giving and asking for reasons.”

She just said: “This is a caterpillar [as opposed to a worm] because it’s got legs.”

This is consistent with what we were told at the Child Care social night last night – Lillian is developing completely normally. Maryanne, one of her main carers, emphasized that this was in every respect.

Update:

Oops.  We cut the caterpillar in half trying to put the lid on the container in which we were going to keep it.  Very upsetting.

We went out into the back yard and found another.  This time it was a worm.
