I haven't really given a concentrated update specifically on the siblings. Yes, that can be said with an ominous voice. You see the last time I really focused on how they were doing was shortly after Mae became mobile. Ace had been doing very well with that. So how is he now??? How is Mae?
Overall the two of them are doing very well to not only to coexist together but also to play nice. Ace is an extremely loving brother and for the most part patient. He loves to take pictures with her and asks to pose for them.
Ace loves to tell us (the parents) "Look at your daughter!" when Mae is doing something silly. It's amusing. He loves to hold her hand, pick her up, show her how to do things and tell her things.
Mae loves these things as well - to a point. Mae is a typical little sister more and more each day. She wants to do everything Ace is doing, she doesn't understand "that's his" just yet, and seems willing to explore every location her brother is. She loves him a lot and wants to be just like him in many ways.
They have their moments of tug of war over a toy, a seat, or a piece of something - they scream refuse to relent without intervention - so you know - normal. :) These moment are still more the exception than the rule and that makes us pleased.
We want them to continue to love and respect one another as their personalities and roles in the family alter and change. They are adorable individually and together and I think if they work together could cause all sorts of trouble, in the fun kid-sort of way!
They certainly are off and about on their adventures. Sometimes together, sometimes on their own. But really, by choice or objection they can almost always be found togheter. :)
