Several people have been asking us how Callie has been adjusting to her baby brothers! Well, we are happy to tell you that she has been adjusting rather well!
At first, she just liked looking at her brothers, but then she started showing sigs of jealousy.
When people would ask her about her brothers, she would get really quiet and look off into the distance - her face looking up towards the sky. Honestly, it made me REALLY sad to see this. Callie has always been such an outgoing little girl that this simply killed me to see.
Us "Callie, do you like your baby brothers?" Callie "No Thanks"
Us "Callie, how do you like being a big sister?" Callie "Okay"
When the babies cry, she goes over and gets a burp rag - wipes their mouth and then walks away. When the boys are playing in their play gym, she sits on the end and talks to them. When they are sleeping in their bouncy seat, she sometimes rocks them. She wants to hold the at least once a day as well!
Funny thing - she has a special bond with Carter! She always wants to hold him and if you ask her "Who this is (referring to one of her brothers)" - she always answers with "Carter". If she's holding Collin and we tell her, she doesn't want to hold him anymore. So lately, when she is holding Collin and we ask her who she is holding and she answers with Carter - we just agree :) Collin needs his sister's love too :)
It goes to show just how awesome of a kid she really is :) We love you Callie Lynae...you are one special girl!
