This last month there seems to have been a growth in the boys’ relationship. G is just as lovely with him, wanting to share toys with him, pass him stuff and talking about what they’ll share when B is bigger.
“When he get bigger he can share my toast. But not now. He too little”
“When he get bigger mum he can go on the BIIIIIIIGGGGGGG slide with me!”
“He too little to play. But when he get bigger he share with me”
My. Heart. Is. Melting.
Don’t get me wrong I am fairly certain that I will be reading this back in a few years and scoffing at the idea that they’d “share” and wander off to break up another fight over who’s toy it is they are fighting over, but I can live in hope!
The biggest change this last month is in B. He will of course, change so rapidly over this next year. And this month he has started to become more interactive with G. His eyes follow G around a room, watching where he goes and what he’s doing. And he is giving G huge smiles when he comes over to talk to him. Which means he actually wants to talk to his baby brother that bit more. I guess it’s nice to have some proof that he’s listening to him.
G can almost always make his brother stop and listen, and cheer him up if he’s a bit grumpy (not a full blown crying strop.that’s a job for boobs!).
We often joke that B isn’t a mummy’s boy or a daddy’s boy. He’s G’s boy!
