O and Q are continuing to bond as a 4 year old and newborn baby should. O is so loving towards Q, although doesn’t seem to grasp the meaning of the phrase ‘Never wake a sleeping baby’, much to my dismay. That being said, he is very willing to help and care for Q. He is happy to pass things over when we’re changing nappies. He tries to calm Q as they share the back seat of the car by singing songs and giving Q his doh-dee. It is so very sweet.
Q looks up at his brother with such a look of love and admiration. He seems to know that O is a little person like he is, and enjoys watching O being silly and showing off his toys. Q will watch O prance about and chatter and smile at him, which O adores.
I remember when I would collect him from nursery and he would cry that he was the only one without a brother or sister. I used to feel so sorry for him! O is so happy to have his very own wingman now – he always wanted a brother. Although, Q isn’t quite what O expected. He thought his new brother would arrive walking and talking… I suppose this is a good way to teach O some patience!
I have ordered a large canvas for the wall in our living room of one of the first Siblings photos I took when Q was just a month old. I can’t wait for it to arrive. I love taking these photos to track how they change.
