Now that Little is getting ready to transition to school and becoming a kid vs a toddler, I’m realizing with the Twins that toddlerhood is my absolute favorite phase of childhood. Everyone always says: “Twins?! Toddlers?! I don’t know how you do it!”
At first I was kind of apprehensive. Little was pretty easy through toddlerhood for the most part. Everyone kept telling me I got lucky and sharing their toddler war stories so I was doing my best to prepare for all hell to break loose after 18 months. Lol. The Boys are much more rambunctious than Little, even with B2 behind on his gross motor development, but it isn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be.
B1 has the cutest game right now where he will bring me any and everything he can find, hold it up to show me and say: “Mama ook!” He’ll do that for hours while I’m cleaning, writing or cooking lol. Anywhere I am he’ll find me and share his treasures.
B2 sort of does something similar, except with him he’s breaking a rule like climbing on the back of the couch or playing with a light switch or hitting his sister… every single time he does something he knows he’s not supposed to he gets a giant smile and starts laughing. It’s hard to correct him with out laughing myself. Especially since his laugh is very “HA HA HA HA” it’s definitely not a giggle like B1 and Little. It’s a very brusk, very defined “HA HA HA HA” and coming from such a tiny little boy you really can’t help but giggle yourself.
That kind of surprised me. I thought B1 would be my trouble maker and B2 was the sweet one. Nope. B1 has the most gentle sensitive soul, and B2 is my trouble maker. Lol. Watching them get into things together is even more entertaining lol. One toddler explores their environment, gets into things, and learns along the way. With two toddlers one does the recon and the other follows after. B1 will figure something out and show B2 they both get in trouble. B2 will figure something out and show B1 and they both get in trouble lol.
They definitely keep me busy, that much is for sure! 💕
