My husband remarked at dinner tonight that it was a bit strange seeing Harry cram his face with food using both hands. We are still so used to seeing Evan daintily picking food up with his right hand. I still dress Harry like I am compensating for a gimpy left hand. I just can't break the habit. I often have to remind myself that he can help me get both of his arms into the sleeves.
Another difference is that Harry at the end of a meal has two dirty hands instead of one. I guess that would be the one advantage to having a child with one working hand. I have actually taken advantage of this fact on occasion. When we want to hold Evan down for some procedure or another we never have to worry about the other arm. This is especially nice for blood draws. If they use his good arm to draw from all I have to worry about is keeping the rest of his body still.
Seeing Harry as he is growing into his own little person is fun. It is so much different than with Evan. I think we are heading for some big shocks since I have already seen Harry try to run, something that Evan has yet to master. He also looks like he might be a climber. I have seen him ponder things that are climbable with a gleam in his eyes. I just hope that he is not too hard on his poor parents we are still rookies in so many ways.
