Thing 1 is showing me “Look Miss Pretty, I’m a big boy now.”
Jimmy is so proud that he wears real clothes, no more of those one-size-fits-all mummy looking designer stuff that he was bundled up. He outgrew them all.

The thing is Layla’s hair is growing so fast that she needs a bow to keep the strands together instead of looking like Fido!
The hair will grow and grow; there is no stopping it, let it grow long and wild!
