This kid. Let me tell you. He sure knows how to do two. One minute he’s being all sweet and giving you kisses, telling you he loves you. And then the next minute his face changes. It becomes serious. He starts to growl and furrows his brow. He stomps his feet, swings his arms and slowly charges after you. Most of the time he’s being playful and just wants to wrestle with you. But sometimes, he’s hurt or offended and will actually swing punches or kicks. He’s very different from Micah at two. Ethan is very independent and determined, mostly thanks to having a big brother to look up to, I imagine. He is also fueled to do stuff, sometimes, by the fact that he’s just not allowed to do it (as pictured above). He very much dotes on his big brother still and daddy is still the favorite. Also following in his brother’s footsteps is his love of trucks. He will often hear a truck coming down the street and will run to the door to see it drive past.
Pictured here with one of two of his latest obsessions, the other being legos. Micah loves breakfast. But I think he might love legos more. Not much keeps Micah from breakfast, but legos sure can! He’s really good at creating things from his imagination as opposed to using the directions. He’s not so much my baby anymore. He continues to have a very tender and sensitive disposition unlike his rough and tough brother. That difference in personality is probably the source of most of their disagreements. He’s mastering riding his bike and looking forward to preschool in the fall.
