Mark, at 2-years old …
Mark is such a big boy now!

I still use a fence to keep Mark in one area of the house so I can watch him better. At 2-years old, he is taller, and can easily climb OVER the fence, so I position the fence a little higher (to prevent him from climbing OVER). But having the fence higher, he still found a way to escape the room, or so he thought! 😉
Disclaimer: No child was hurt in the taking of this picture. Mark is crying, NOT because he is hurt, but because he could NOT move further towards the direction he wants!

Most of the time they get along really well, but there are a lot of times, too, when they don’t. On Friday night, they were fighting over a mask! Mark pulled the mask off Matthew’s face (because he wanted his turn and Matthew wouldn’t let him). The mask slingshot to Matthew’s right eye. Matthew cried HARD, couldn’t open his eye, saw the doctor later on; and just as I suspected, Matthew has lacerations in his eye. On the next day (Saturday), I was concerned that he might get severe eye infection from the previoius injury and all the rubbing he was doing on his eye, but the prescription eye-drops must have prevented it as Matthew still has not shown any infection in his eye and it’s healing really well. But guess who developed an eye infection on his right eye out of God-knows-what–cause-I-have-no-clue on the same day? Mark did! It’s not severe and it’s nothing that a warm compress can’t treat, but … the irony with these two boys just blows my mind.
For all who are concerned, both Matthew and Mark are doing well, and their eyes are healing.
UPDATE: Mark had a slight fever (must be from the eye infection), but he is better now; and his pink (sore) eye is clearing up a bit!
