He's a Big Brother!

Our sweet little baby girl, Blair, arrived on June 8th and our family has been settling into life as a family of five. Both of my older children adore her and love their new roles as big sister and big brother.

Brenden, for the most part, gives Blair her space and isn’t overly interested in her most of the time. He’s usually too involved in playing, or rather making a ginormous mess, in some other area of the house while I’m sitting and nursing and can’t do anything about it. But, when he decides that he wants to hold the baby, he gives her lots of love, and is very gentle and sweet with her.

Pretty much every time that he sits down and holds her the first thing he says is, “Awww, she likes me.” And then he kisses her on the cheek. It’s about the cutest thing ever.

And the other day she was fussy and crying and he said, very matter of factly, “I think she wants her big brother.” So, so sweet!

And because you can never take too many pictures of a new baby, here’s some off Bren with Blair in his new role as big brother!
