The Best Big Brother
Logan is an amazing Big Brother. He helps me so much (as much as an almost three year old can) and is very sweet to his Little Brother. He is quick to find missing Binky's, will gladly grab a burp cloth for me and has gained more independence as each day passes. He can use the bathroom by himself while I'm nursing Carter, can grab his own snacks (if I leave them at preschooler eye-level) and will help me make his lunch.
When Carter is crying and I can't get to him immediately, Logan will give Carter his Binky, tell him it's OK and try to calm him down. It's the cutest thing ever. Eventually he gets tired of it, covers his ears with his hands and walks away grumbling. Yesterday he "babysat" Carter for the first time while I was in the shower. I brought Carter into the bathroom with me and sat him in his bouncer next to the shower door. Logan sat with him keeping him company until I was finished. Carter loves to watch Logan and calms down when Logan tells him stories (mostly about cars, dinosaurs or robots).
Logan also loves to give Carter hugs and kisses, tickles and knuckles. He always gives him a hug and kiss good-night. He also loves to show off his Little Brother to his friends. So cute! I'm so lucky to witness such a strong brotherly bond created so early. I will definitely enjoy watching it grow.
