We got to spend time with my newest niece and their newest cousin this week during Fall Break! Thankfully, M was happy for me to hold her, because her older sister wasn’t really having anything to do with me. She had a great time with my girls, just not me so much!
This was B’s first time around a tiny baby. I was super impressed she wasn’t jealous of me holding M. She was just curious. She kept coming over and tilting her head and body to the side…for what reason, I’m not really sure. But, it was making us all laugh.
Then B walked in front of me and tried to scoop M out of my arms. I asked her if she wanted to hold her and she said “yes.” So, we compromised because I’m crazy enough to hop on a plane with my four girls by myself, but I’m not crazy enough to let my 20 month old hold a 2 month old!
She just sat and stared for the most part while being extra gentle holding her. I was super impressed that she liked “holding” her so much. I sent the hubby this picture and told him she was working on trying to be a big sister. I think he wanted to hang up on me. So, we’ll have to keep being a good big cousin!
It’s back to school and the routine for us this week. It’s always an adjustment!
What were you up to this week?
Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.
