Meeting Big Brother....

Kisses from Solon...

Saying "Hi Vera!"
Showing her one of his big brother gifts

(great idea by my Aunt Chris - he had a bag of gifts called his "big brother" survival kit and each time he came to vist he got a special gift just for being a big brother.  It kept him entertained while visiting and he felt so special to get his own gifts - nothing huge just perfect toys to keep him busy - like the matchbox cars - Thanks Aunt Chris!!!)

We have had our ups and downs with Solon "liking" his sister.  He is doing better now that we are home.  He did not like daddy especially holding her.  He would say "no baby" and try to push her away...but now that we are all home he has not said that once.  He likes to watch her, talk to her, touch her, rock her in her car seat, and help mommy with throwing diapers away.  He especially interested in watching her eat...*smile.  We explained she drinks milk from mommy and he totally thought that was great!  I think the more that we get into a routine the better.
