Mateo, Francesca and Catalina love each other. It is evident by the way Mateo plays with both Francesca and Catalina - reading them books, dancing, telling them jokes or singing songs. It's obvious in the way Cataline smiles and giggles at Mateo and Francesca plays along and mimics Mateo's language. And hugs ALWAYS abound.
I think one of their favorite past times is reading. I love it - probably because I am so passionate about the subject of reading. It is very exciting to see Mateo developing early literacy skills (writing short words, writing out the entire alphabet in sidewalk chalk, recognizing certain words within his books as we read aloud with him...) and to observe Francesca develop preliteracy skills (opening a book and turning pages from left to right while she reads the pictures in jibberish, pointing at pictures and saying the name...)
