Brotherly Love

Busy boys


I’m still sick, and although John caught it too, he seems to have fared the best out of us all (even though he’s the littlest. Must be the breastfeeding?) I was a little worse for the wear today with nausea, dizziness, and fatigue. Nathan didn’t seem to get the clogged nose, stopped-up ears, or cough that’s plaguing me. Oh the joys of parenthood! I wouldn’t have it any other way, though. It just goes with the territory when you have kids- you catch their sicknesses.

My mother-in-law picked Nathan up from school today and took him to a museum, a park, and had a picnic lunch with him so that I could get some rest since I wasn’t feeling so well. He had so much fun, and even though he was really tired, he was really pretty good for the rest of the evening. And he came home with a new battery-operated train with tracks! He loves trains, so he spent a lot of the evening playing with his new train. He likes watching it go round and round. We even took the baby in Nathan’s room to he could get in on the fun! And while John was in there, I got him to sit up unassisted for about four seconds! I can’t believe how quickly they’re both growing.

I love my family!


Big brother’s tall tales


It has begun.

Nathan tried to get John in trouble.

See, our toilet seat falls back down whenever Nathan tries to raise it so he can pee. Because of that, he’s just started leaving it down. Unfortunately, he will sometimes get pee on the toilet seat.

I went there to use the restroom, and when I stood up, I realized I had sat in pee. After getting myself and the toilet seat cleaned up, I told Nathan he needs to pay more attention when he pees to make sure all his pee goes in the toilet and not on the seat.

“Nathan didn’t pee on the seat,” he told me.

“Oh really?” I said.

“No, it wasn’t Nathan, it was baby brother.”


“Baby brother went into the bathroom, took off his diaper, and peed all over the potty and everywhere,” Nathan said with a straight face.

Who knew my seven-week-old baby was so precocious?


Doting big brother


Nathan adores his little brother and asks to hold him at every opportunity. I absolutely love watching this bond develop!
