i took this photo last week (shortly after samantha threw up on her shirt and socks):
yep. my 30-month old and my almost 16-month old are just about the same size. they weigh the same (around 28 pounds). they wear the same size clothing (24 months and 2T….. though his 24-month clothing is getting a little too small).
but they (mostly) love each other and (mostly) they play well together. they both love remotes, cell phones, davey’s shopping cart (from uncle john & auntie babi), sam’s baby doll stroller and all the toy kitchen plates, cups, teapots and related items. these are the things they fight over ALL. THE. TIME. oh yeah – and sam’s purse (from auntie rachel & uncle sterling). they LOVE that, too!
it seems samantha has picked up, yet another, disgusting bug (big surprise with all the things she sticks in her mouth!). she spent a few days throwing up partially-digested milk all over our house (it’s a good thing dave REALLY wanted that carpet cleaner last year – it’s come in VERY handy lately). so we moved her to the BRAT diet (you may recall that this also happened about 2-3 weeks ago – just before i got sick). we finally had to go without giving her milk AT. ALL for 2 days. that was pretty torturous…. for us as much as for her. then we found Rice Dream (milk) and things seemed to be going okay. until she had a MAJOR diaper blow out today during naptime (it required full bed-strippage AND a bath). so we’ll see what happens next. i should mention, that we JUST PURCHASED a CASE (12 cartons) of Rice Dream milk at Costco this morning/early afternoon (before naptime).
