The Noah's

This is something we hear often:

Jonah: Here you go, Noah!

Noah: Thank you, Noah!

The twins are super verbal. They chitter chatter back and forth all day long, and talk with us about anything and everything. Interestingly, Noah has always been the very clear speaker. Everything he says is clear enough, for even those who are not around them a lot, to totally understand. But the one thing he won't say, is Jonah. His brothers name. In fact, when looking at a picture of the two of them, Noah once said:
"It's the Noah's!"
"No," I say "It's Noah and Jonah... say 'JO-NAH'"
Noah, with a giant smile, "NOAH!"
Recently, however, he has started to have a little more fun, and experiment with his brothers name... Yesterday I heard:
"Jonut" and "JaNoah" (I think that second one may catch on sometime)
But even that didn't have a long stay. Shortly after the name game, Jonah, once again, became Noah.
So, sweet Jonah... I am sorry. I want you to know that although your brother does not see you apart from himself, I know you are your own man. And one of these days... he will too.
Twins. They are so much fun.
