Sibling Love: Month 7


With less and less guided direction I’ve watched the bond between Lil’ Abner and her brother grow.

For now, we are at place of mutual adoration. I don’t have to be as concerned with Wyndham poking Abby’s eyes out, our pushing her over, or whipping things at her head.

This is a good thing.

He’s always been tuned in to her needs, it’s been lovely to watch him develop into responding to those needs with an understanding compassion and reaction – beyond his years.

They play together! They actually play together! For now, they are best buds. I know this may change with the years, but for now, sibling rivalry has yet to rear it’s woe-begotten head. A typical day in the life of Abby with her bro, after the jump!

    Always quick to soothe his sister, unfortunately she isn't always in to it.
  • Playtime 3 of 8
    We're in a stage where Wyndham plays quite nicely with his sister, sharing and giving her toys to play with. A stage up from launching them at warp speed in her general direction.

    Her lego is far more interesting than her brother's multiple attempts at a cuddle-fest.

    On lego, stacking cups and snack-time. It's a baby/toddler thing.

    Mouth Obsession
    Age difference doesn't matter. It's into the mouth objects often go. What is this fascination the have with putting things into their mouths?

Do you have baby/toddler siblings close in age? Has it been difficult or magical? In other words – what can I expect?
