I know all 3 of the kids will have special, yet separate, bonds with each other. But these 2....I think because of their age difference....seem to have a really special connection. Parker is older and a lot more helpful to him, and he picks up on this. Grace....well...she loves him so much and she does try to help. And she does... at times. But at other times, she's still kind of 'in his face' and pokes and prods...and hurts him. :)
Parker loves him so much she wants to marry him. I think it's the sweetest thing...because the reason she wants to marry him is because she can't imagine not living with him and seeing him everyday. It's so sweet....but then I tell her that she can't marry her brother since he's already in her family and that one day she'll find her own prince (this is the language she understands) like I found Daddy. ;)
On the morning we made the birthday cake for Geoff....Nolan woke up from his nap and was ready to eat right at the time I needed to make the frosting to put over the warm cake. Of course.
So out of 'desperation'...I asked Parker to just start feeding him. She was more than happy to do so. I wasn't sure how they'd both do....but by the time I was finished with the the icing....he was half way done with the bottle. So....instead of taking him from her....I let her finish feeding him and I was able to clean up the kitchen!
She looks like a pro....feeding him while watching TV. haha!
And middle sis was promised her turn for another day. :)
I thought I might let Parker feed him more often....but she hasn't since that day. Can't believe my oldest baby is big enough to feed my littlest baby. And that my middle baby will be 4 next month!!
