bestest big brother in the whole world


rowan has been with us for a week now and i have to boast about how great the little dude has been with him. i'm so proud of what a great big brother he's being. he's such a little helper.

he's super gentle with him and listens well when we tell him not to touch his eyes etc.

the first night in the hospital, just an hour or so after i had given birth, the little dude came to visit. all he said all night was "he's so cute!" "he's so cute!" "he's so cute!" it was the sweetest thing ever.

if he walks in the room and i'm not holding him, he says: "where's my baby brother at?" it's so funny.

he gives him hugs and kisses every night before bed.

he sings him "rock-a-bye-baby", "twinkle twinkle little star", and "you are my sunshine" when he's crying.

he helps change every diaper and throws them away for us.

he has to go "check him" whenever he cries in his cradle.

he goes to get his car seat whenever we're ready to go anywhere, and he puts it away when we get home.

after hearing so many horror stories about toddlers who rebel when their little siblings come home, i had prepared myself for some major temper tantrums/adjustment period. i have to say that we haven't had to deal with any of that. sure there have been a few breakdowns here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary for a 2 1/2 year old. he's been such a good boy and i'm such a proud mamma. it has made my own adjustment period that much easier.

i love you little dude. thanks for being the bestest big brother in the whole world! you're the best!!
