Parent gesture - 2 Child gesture - 4

Parent gesture - 12 Child gesture - 15

Parent gesture - 14 Child gesture - 19

Parent gesture - 9 Child gesture - 9

etc

The correlation piece I can figure out but I am struggling as to whether the data set is ordinal or categorical. My thought is the data is ordinal since the mother that gestures the most has the child that gestures the most so there is order. Am I correct in my assumption?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.
