I tried feeding both kids lunch together at the table. It's still not working cause E just wants whatever M is having and won't eat what I have for her. I had to step away to the kitchen for a minute and their "convo" went something like this...
E (crying): mamamama (E's way of saying umma.)
M (sweetly & quietly) : Ellie, no cry. Oppa here. No worry.
E (crying): mamamamama....
M: No cry. It okay. Umma comim' back.
I love them.
*umma = mommy
oppa = older brother
