the unbearable cuteness of being

Thursday, June 5, 2014

One of the questions I am getting most these days is:  "How is Jack handling being a big brother?"

People are asking because getting a sibling can cause a chemical reaction.  That reaction can be cool and interesting, like the requisite science class volcano eruption experiment.  Or, the reaction can be uncool and scary, like whatever happened to The Joker's face.

Luckily for us, even though we do love Batman in our family, Sawyer has been welcomed into Jack's world with open arms.  

Jack wants to change his diapers (no); help to bathe him (OK); teach him to walk (eventually); and help us to drop him off and pick him up at school each day (OK, but please hurry up putting your shoes back on).

Despite knowing deep down what a good heart Jack has, I had visions of eye-poking and "accidental" hitting when the baby arrived.

I should have known better.


Hope you get to cuddle with someone you adore today.

Talk soon,
Heather

  2. This picture is truly representative of Jack as a boy - a huge heart and lots of love to give, esp. to his little brother.<3

  3. Jack is telling him a cool secret, Bunny is supervising, and Mom is documenting. All is right in Jack's world. ;)

  4. How is it that S is so big?

    I knew that Jack would be awesome. YAY Jack!

  5. Adorable! So glad that the transition is going smoothly. It's awesome to see what the big sibs intentionally and unintentionally teach the little ones. D. was just the same with C when she arrived, and it's coming back to bite him because she's turned into his shadow and is driving him nuts. :)
