Happy Hump Day!

It's amazing to watch our two little babies develop on a daily basis. And while Makenna has 11 months up on her little brother, Isaiah's doing his best to keep up with her. With Makenna, we just sit back and eagerly watch what she does next. With Isaiah, we tend to compare what he does now to what Makenna did when she was his age, even though it was really not long ago at all! I guess that's what happens when you're the second child; it turns out being a comparison. But it's not like we do it purposely, it just comes out that way.

Right now, the little man is going through some serious separation anxiety, and finds 100% comfort in mommy. I, of course, am #1 in his eyes, but when Enz is around, he'd rather be with her! Lately he's been clingy to those who are always around him, and if he hasn't seen you in a while, chances are he'll be "afraid" of you. Luckily it only takes a few minutes for him to warm up, but we thought he'd be past this already (although this phase seems to come and go). Last night, a couple of his aunties came by, and since he hadn't seen them in a week or so, it was like he was meeting complete strangers for the first time. It's as if he becomes super shy, and needs the comfort and security of someone he knows. Of course, he was also hungry at the time they came by, so that might have had something to do with it because after he ate, he was back to his normally spunky self! Sometimes we just can't get an accurate read off him!

Makenna is the polar opposite, and when she encounters someone she hasn't seen in a while, you can see her trying to figure out who this person is. When she finally does, she goes into overdrive and acts as if she's just had a few tablespoons of sugar! For her, she gets into her own little world, and its really entertaining, if not tiring, to watch! The good thing about it is that Isaiah sees her having a good time and then joins her as she entertains everyone, forgetting that he was "scared" of everyone just a few minutes prior. While Isaiah is our shy and reserved one, Makenna is our outgoing and bold one! For now, we're enjoying the fact that they're opposite of one another, however long that'll last. Happy Wednesday!
