Teeny Courfeyrac is always smiling and laughing and running around, and he always wants cuddles, and he loves playing with his friends, and he’s the happiest baby ever. (Except when he’s really really sleepy, at which point he gets a bit whiny and pouty, or if he falls over or bumps his head or scrapes his knees, and then he’s all wibbly lips and big eyes and tiny brave little sniffles and whimpers. Luckily he’s pretty easy to cheer up.)
Baby Enjolras is strangely quiet. Like, unnervingly quiet. He’s rather stubborn (as expected) and he can be a little stroppy, but he never really has loud tantrums or screaming fits. The worst he’ll do is whine loudly in protest and maybe cross his arms petulantly. He can be wriggly and kick a bit if you try to pick him up when he’s in a mood, too. But overall he really doesn’t say much past ‘yes’ ‘no’ ‘please’ and ‘thank you’.
Bahorel is THE most TROUBLESOME child you have EVER met. He’s older than Courf and Enjolras - read as; old enough to run at a decent speed without stumbling, old enough to climb places, and old enough to speak in clear, cheeky sentences. He digs around in the mud (to get worms for Joly and Jehan’s bug collection!!) and climbs trees and runs all over the place and THEN he runs into the house all mucky and covered in dirt and gets it ALL OVER THE PLACE. And as soon as you say the word ‘bath’ he’s GONE and hiding somewhere like on top of the fridge (where he only gets MORE DIRTY) and you basically have to lay a trap to catch him.
Little Feuilly is, kind of unsurprisingly, basically Enjolras’ best friend, because the two of them are quite happy to just sit themselves in a little corner and play quietly. Feuilly isn’t quite as quiet as Enjolras, maybe because he’s a bit older, but he’s very quiet when he does talk, almost like he’s always whispering. He seems kind of amazed by the house and getting a bed (even though he has to share) and he’s always very very nice and polite and very sweet. He can be a little skittish though.
Joly and Jehan are the ITTIEST BITTIEST TINY BABIES IN THE WORLD AND IT IS ADORABLE. Joly is all big floofy curls and chubby cheeks with dimples, and Jehan has the brightest, most curious eyes. They are fascinated by EVERYTHING and spend all their time trying to get into things or get on top of things or behind things or under things and they just wanna explore and look at all the things and they’re a little bit of a handful cause you gotta keep an eye on them, but they’re just too cute for it to be an actual problem.
Grantaire is very quiet and shy and he kind of avoids Combeferre, but he likes looking after the kids. Bahorel quite often drags him into playing with him, and that seems to make Grantaire very happy; sometimes he tags along with Jehan and Joly (and Bossuet, who has appointed himself their official keeper) when he wants a bit more quiet time. He actually gets on okay with Enjolras and Feuilly and they make up this quiet little gang who all sit together and play games together. Grantaire is the best at fingerpainting and shadow puppets and he can read, so the two younger ones adore him.
Bossuet is the most gentle, kind, lovely child you ever did see. He’s really happy to look after the younger kids - it makes a nice change from what he’s used to, which is being the youngest of 13 - and loves playing with them and talking to them and reading stories to them and going exploring with them. He looks after Jehan and Joly on all their little adventures and he’s Joly’s FAVOURITE, and he always gives Courfeyrac cuddles when he wants them, and he helps give out the snacks at snack time, and is generally just great.
Combeferre has his hands full and is kind of despairing of all the little children he’s suddenly in charge of, but at the same time he adores them all and he’s glad he CAN look after them and it’s kind of fun so all in all it’s good.
