“As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen.” –Winnie the Pooh
Elijah is doing amazing as a big brother. Even better than I had hoped he would do.
He does super sweet things, completely unprompted. The first thing he did when he woke up this morning was ask to hold Emaline. And by ask to hold her, I mean he says “I want it, I want it!” We need to work on his use of personal pronouns.I love his crazy bedhead. He gets so happy when he holds her. She started touching his face and he thought it was hilarious.
We try to keep Eli’s routine the same as it was before Emaline was born, we just add her into it. We read the Bible in our bed every night as a family. The other night I caught him holding her hand.It was so sweet, I thought my heart might explode.Whenever RJ is holding her, Eli wants to sit right with them. She was crying so monkey decided that he would bring her toys to make her happy. I think it was the matchbox cars that did the trick.Eli is very into giving Emaline baths. He asks all the time if baby girl needs a tubby. He even picks out bath toys for her to play with.Elijah will often tell us to put Emmy in his “yo ho” bed. Even when he doesn’t have the Jake sheets on it; it is still his yo ho bed. My babies in their diaps.RJ bought this Disney princess baby book, for Elijah to give Emaline, on one of his baby store runs. Eli wanted to read it to her right away.He wanted her to wake up to experience her first Target adventure.He likes to show his baby sister the toys on the swing. He doesn’t like that they hang and she can’t hold them.Elijah will try to bring his stool from the bathroom into Emaline’s nursery so he can “help” with her diaper changes.And on her very first day home, he brought her his favorite airplane toy. If that’s not a two year old’s way of saying I love you, I don’t know what is.
