he hasn’t heard that white men can’t jump

The biggest difference between Simon and Oliver so far is that Simon is cautious where Oliver is fearless. Simon started jumping off things soon after Oliver was born. Oliver started last week. Simon has rarely had bumps or bruises. Oliver has a new one each week. (He’s currently sporting a rug burn over his right eyebrow.) Let’s hope he makes it to his second birthday without stitches, broken bones, or trips to the ER.

I suppose this is what happens when you have a big brother to show you how it’s done. Although, I’m amazed at how frequently Simon is inspired by what Oliver is doing. Amazed and a little bit annoyed. But just a little.

  1. That is an awesome action shot! (ojumps3) I don’t know that I’ve ever seen him get a leg up that high when jumping. And of course Simon is standing in the wings ready to take his turn right after.

  2. It amazes me how fearless Oliver is. Siblings do seem to have quite an influence over each other. I don’t know who had the idea to roll the twins (or push them or whatever) down the stairs when they were itty bitty, but the result was certainly not a good one. That is how Abby ended up in a body cast, right? Somehow I blame myself for that though I can’t imagine it was my idea to begin with. :) I think we just wanted them to have as much fun as we were having!

  3. Wow, that’s pretty crazy! I can’t wait to see what Caleb is like as he gets older – I have a feeling he won’t be nearly as calm as Samuel.
