A little mother…

Alexis does not play with any of her dolls. Why would she, when she has a brother? Alexis almost always makes sure her brother is taken care of. If she gets a treat/snack, she always asks for more than one and proceeds to take it to her brother. When JB leaves his cup somewhere, she picks it up carries it around then offers it to him (she often will sip it, to make sure it’s still good). One incident that I thought was purely adorable was the other day when were leaving the house. I told the kids to get their blankets to go bye-bye. Alexis grabbed hers then JB’s. She took it over to him and said “droder, droder, droder” as she handed it to him. He took it and dropped it on the floor almost immediately. She picked it back up and repeated “droder” again until he took it. I think it is sweat how loving she is to him, and for the most part she doesn’t fight with him (he has no problem fighting with her). When he wants something she normally gives it over to him, because she knows it’s what he wants. When he is in a time out in his crib, she always wants in there. The days that she wakes up before him, she is constantly going back to the bedroom door and pointing, when he does wake up she squeals with delight and runs to the room with open arms and reaches into him crib to say “I missed you brother!”

New word: Last night Jeremiah started repeating “Love you” after we would say it to him. It was so adorable!!!!

I just love my job as a mommy and I just love my babies!

That is a sweet story, and what I like most about it, is I remember you taking care in the same way of your little brother just a few years back. Oh wait, I guess it was it was a little more...
