two


So far, having two has been... interesting. Evan is sweet as pie to Delaney; it's actually a joy to behold. He talks to her in a soft whispery voice, always wants to rub her head and look at her, and is generally very interested in what she's doing. It's how he's relating to us that's been a little difficult. For the past few months, he's been mercurial like most kids his age, but now he goes from happy to shrieking with little provocation. His tantrums are longer and louder - and much more frequent. I know it's just a phase, but I am simultaneously REALLY annoyed and yet sympathetic. I feel badly for him. All of a sudden his world has been turned upside down and I think he's just trying to be sure where he fits in.

But look at the two of them... tantrums or no, I feel like the luckiest person in the world.

That picture is SO sweet. I refuse to believe you about the tantrums. That kid just looks too sweet.

Pictures and posts like this make me want kids so badly (sans tantrums).
