While Sophia Was Napping............

When Sophia is awake, little Keenan has to fight for his play time with me. Since they rarely nap at the same time, I try to take full advantage of Sophia's nap time for some one on one time with Keenan. He is still not convinced about the merits of grass and rarely ventures off the blanket, at least, not yet............

Lately, Sophia seems to have taken full note of her numerical age and is prone to having the mercurial temperament associated with the 'terrible twos.' It wouldn't be so bad if she didn't have the tendency to take it out on her little brother. He (and we) are having to become quite adept at dodging flying toys these days. Today, while they were playing together, Sophia started to push him (unfortunately, a common occurrence as of late). Keenan responded by putting his hand on her shoulder and leaning into her, promptly knocking her down. As they landed with a thump, Sophia was laughing, but Keenan apparently wanted to make his point and he proceeded to try to sit on her. All the while, I was doing my best to smother any hint of laughter. I'm not sure I fully succeeded. I keep trying to remind Sophia that some day her little brother will likely be bigger in size, and she had better keep that in mind as she doles out more toy cars in the face.

That is funny... Usually that is how it works.. the oldest thinks they are boss, until that final day when the oldest isn't the biggest anymore..
Kids are so funny in the ways they react and try to defend themselves at that age..
He is very cute..
Changing so much..
Have a great week.
