Loving Baby Alex

Many of you have asked how Brandon is adjusting to having a new baby brother. Well we couldn't have asked for a better transition. Brandon hasn't missed a beat, nor has he beaten his baby brother. In fact, he absolutely loves him. Brandon is always on top of Alex crying, often becoming Captain Obvious by announcing "Baby Brother Cry!" But he does follow that up with "Baby Brother Happy!" when Alex settles down. One morning I was taking a shower while Alex slept in the swing and Brandon watched Mickey Mouse. Well Alex started to cry to I peeked out of the shower as I was about to get out and discovered Brandon standing in front of the swing, holding Alex's pacifier, trying in vain to insert it in Alex's mouth while the swing was moving, resulting in a drooping arm, hand wagging vision while he recited "Baby Brother Ah-kay!" over and over again to try to comfort him. It was so sweet and comical at the same time. We have had our moments that Brandon doesn't understand that I have to sit and nurse Alex and I can't "run, run, run" or play at that particular moment. And in some of those moments reading books just doesn't cut it. But overall Brandon is a fantastic, wonderful big brother and absolutely adorable, giving hugs and kisses (gently)to Alex every day.
