What can I say??? We have two 2 year olds that are giving us a run for our money. I knew that having girls would be a little easier in the early years. Boys are rambunctious and dirty and require more attention when they are younger but then they mellow out and I think they are easier as teenagers. Girls are fun in the beginning with all the pink and bows and frilly dresses. Then they get older and hormonal and then you have a huge mess on your hands.
Well are girls are showing us just how hard things are going to be in the future. Miss Riley has such a personality. She is really letting us know when she is not happy and she is throwing the best fits when she doesn't get her way. After our Zoo trip on Monday, she screamed and cried because I went upstairs to take a bath. Jesse finally gave in and let her come up stairs by me. Then she threw an even bigger fit when I would not allow her to get into the bath with me. She was screaming and yelling and trying so despretely to take her diaper off to get in with me. Jesse came in to take her back down stairs. He tried to take her outside to change her scenery and get her focused on something else but he learned that didn't work and was worried the neighbors were going to call CPS on us so he brought her back inside. It took a good 20 minutes to get her calmed down but she finally did. Now these fits seem to be happening several times a day.
Addison is not as bad as Riley but she still gets pretty upset if lets say....she can't get into the pantry and chose her own snack. If I had two Riley's I would be pulling my hair out with the fits so it is nice that Addison balances things out with a happy smile. Now I love my little full of life child Riley, but that girl is going to give me a run for my money for many years to come.
We also have another problem. The girls have learned how to get over the baby gate at the bottom of the stais. Riley grabs one of her small bins that holds their toys and boosts her self over the gate. Addison can just get herself right over with no help. Now as first time parents, this scares us a bit. Jesse is more concerned about them falling on the stairs but I am concerned about the girls going into the bedrooms upstairs that are not as baby proof. We will have to figure something out here soon so if anyone has any ideas out there to help, let us know.
So that is it for now, terrible 2's and clibing twins....got to love this life!!!
