Although they show moments of irritation and jealousy, it is clear that Sophia and Keenan love hanging out with each other. Together, they come up with fun games and then try to out do one another.....laughing hysterically, right up until one of them crashes into the wall or falls down. But if the tears start, Sophia will pat Keenan on the head and say "Keenan, you OK?" or will reassure him that "itz awww right". The other day, Sophia ended up in time out for hitting Keenan (it was one of those moments of irritation). I turned away from her to look at the clock and when I turned back, I found Keenan sitting next to her, holding her hand and smiling broadly at me. What a team.
Because of Colin's work schedule, we celebrated Thanksgiving a couple of days early. Keenan enjoyed his place at the head of the table and thought that stuffing was some pretty good 'stuff'. I'm not entirely sure his digestive system agreed as he threw up at 2 am. Colin got to deal with that unfortunate mess. Poor kid, he does have a pretty bad cold, so it might have been that. It's too bad, it was actually something he really liked to eat and that is pretty rare to come by. I'll wait until he is really over this cold and maybe try again, early in the day perhaps.
We bought the fleece bear suit for Keenan a month ago because I missed the wonderful bear suit that Kimberley had given him last year (he has long outgrown it). This was the closest thing I could find to it.
Prior to our recent visit to the Lincoln Park Zoo, Keenan's favorite book was "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" with "Polar Bear, Polar Bear" running a close second. All that changed after we visited the real deal.
