The Two Year Olds are Back!

I faintly remember doing this before, having two two-year olds in the house at one time.

And here we are again.


Sean's reaction to Suhn has been pretty close to what I expected (maybe one of the only things that has come pretty close to what I expected).

He can go from loving on her, petting and cooing, to pushing, hitting and growling in 10 seconds flat.

And Suhn's reaction to Sean?

She thinks he is hilarious. Except when he is taking her toys, getting in her face or hurting her.

To get a gauge on the frequency of Sean's shenanigans allow me to share Suhn's first English two-word phrases. She says them often and thinks she is quite hilarious when she does.

"Sean no" followed by "Sean nice" (think "Sean be nice")

They are probably the two phrases she has heard the most since joining our family.

So I'm back to refereeing two fickle, "mine"-loving, two-year olds.

(Something I never thought I'd do again.)

Two can be a hard age to have a "twin," (especially when you have spent the first years of your life without one). And yet, I have a feeling, a hunch and a prayer that as my babies grow, they are going to be the best of friends.

Precious! I love Suhn's first English phrases. As my mom says, no matter what ethnic background they are from, all two year olds have similar characteristics - "it's all about ME!" :-)

I loved it Sunday Megan when you were telling me that her first words were "Sean NO!". When you were telling me that she was eating and all at once the smile started and she turned around and just started laughing. She knew what you were talking about!! It was so cute! She really looks like she fits into the family very well (looks like an Asian Kaeb!!) So precious! Love you! Marcia
