August- Sensitive, studious, and gentle with a flair for the dramatic -a truly free spirit, he already marches to his own beat. Possibly a lefty! Easily attached to people, toys, rocks he picks up off the ground, etc. Loves animals, books, hats, rainbows, and skeletons. Favorite foods: Kiwi and all types of pasta & bread. Tends to be a picky eater at the moment. Spirit animal: the koala bear.
Josie - Fearless, Independent, energetic people-pleaser with a mischievous sense of humor. Loves Play-doh, bellybuttons, stripes, and shoes. Also loves telling her brother "NO NO Augie!" Favorite foods: Bacon, pickles, and anything sweet. She will try just about anything, actually. Spirit animal: the river otter.
I'm hoping they will learn to be each others' yin and yang, and that their special twin relationship benefits each as they grow. I can see Josie encouraging August to be more confident and outgoing, and August helping Josie slow down, focus and observe. For now, though, I'm just waiting for the day when my dynamic duo finally get the hang of SHARING!
