Survival of the Fittest

It seems that every developmental stage brings with it some positives and some negatives. At almost 21 months, Jane (right) and Sydney are talking quite a bit, moving around independently, sleeping great.....and FIGHTING! Oh, the fighting.

I am talking hair pulling, body dragging, and biting. It is ugly. Based on their personalities up to this point, I would've guessed that Sydney would be the main culprit. However, Jane (below) is instigating her fair share of the nastiness!

Just today, Jane bit Clare. I am talking a serious didn't break the skin, but almost. (Clare was very upset, and rightly so, but in the midst of her tears, said, "Jane is like a little mosquito." Needless to say, we have dealt with a lot of mosquito bites in the last few days.)

Of course they are sweet to each other too. They hug each other and kiss on each other, but you better beware, that kiss may come with a slap in the face!!!
