Big Brother

This weekend, Boo brought us to tears. Out of nowhere, he walked up to my belly, looked at it and said very clearly and confidently:

"Hi baby! I'm your big brother. I love you, baby!"

Then he kissed my belly.

Papa A and I just looked at each other with pure shock/love/joy/amazement/happiness. Boo is so ready to be a big brother. He's going to be a great one.

Oooh, that is just too sweet! We're desperately trying to get (our) Boo to realize what's happening, but I'm beginning to think it's a lost cause. I'm glad we still have a few months to work on it.

That's so sweet... !
You must have had those tears...

Hope they can be good brothers and become good friends.

I had a friend who just gave birth to a baby girl. The big brother's baby loves her so much that even no body is not allowed to see her. lol.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Hi there --

I'm a casual reader of your blog and thought I would post a note! This reminds me of my oldest son's journey into brotherhood. He was 2 1/2 when our second was born and throughout our pregnancy, routinely checked in with his brother and me.

We took him to every prenatal appointment and ultra sound (with the exception of the few scary moments) and kept him in the labor room with us for quite a while. I wasn't emotionally capable of keeping him with us for his brother's birth.

Sebastian was convinced that he too was pregnant with a baby. Two and a half years later, he still talks about the baby in his tummy.

Being a mother to one tilted my perspective and my priorities in glorious ways that I could not foresee. Being a mother to two children though and witnessing the bond they are developing, siblings! I could not possibly describe this experience in words. It is blissful, emotional, reassuring, and so so much more.

I wish you and your family the best!
