|Soren at age 2, typical of many of my photos of him.|
Jude's behavior, though sometimes grating, isn't so daunting to me. Maybe it's because Soren has worn me in with a groove so deep that it takes a lot to rattle me anymore. Sometimes I find myself thinking "so THIS is what people mean when they talk about the terrible twos." I sometimes feel more like an anthropologist, sitting back and observing and remarking about this developmental stage. To be fair though, Jude is an easy-going child, so I don't think I'm getting the full thrust of toddlerhood, or maybe it's lurking around the corner.
For me, the terrible twos really aren't that bad so far, especially considering the energy and chaos I endured with my eldest. Bring on the tantrums, Two. Just please don't break our TV.
