Two Are Better Than One

... at least according to the author of Ecclesiastes chapter 4:
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
And in Ian and Alec's case, I certainly agree! Despite their occasional squabbles, I can't imagine one without the other. They are playmates, partners and pals. Even as I type this one is outside playing while the other obstinately dallies at drinking his morning milk, but the two of them are calling to one another across the distance with encouragement and updates. They are funny little guys.

Both boys have picked up speed with their verbal abilities again, talking lots (and loudly!) I honestly could not count the number of times a day we hear the phrase, "OH! BIG TRUCK!" which is their constant enthrallment whenever they hear - or even think they hear - one rumbling up the road. The amusing part is the way they pronounce the phrase with extra syllables, so "big truck" actually comes out sounding more like "I beat you up" every time. Then again, maybe that is what they are saying. Who knows?? :)

Ian's third birthday is just around the corner and we are thinking of how to celebrate that in a fun way as a family. He is such an exuberant little boy and I can't wait to see his eyes light up when he realizes it is a day set aside just for him! This is the first birthday we have spent together and I know it will be a special one.

Each day is an adventure with these two and their shenanigans!

My two are 6 months apart and while there are things that are certainly a bit crazy that accompany that, it is so fun to watch them live life together.
