A few weeks ago when Phoebe was in her crib, I jokingly grabbed Enzo and put her in with him, and he got quite a kick out of it. It didn’t last long because he started getting too squirmy, and wanted to stand up and jump, but now every so often he will ask to get in with her.
Josh is away for work this week, so it’s just me and the munchkins. Surprisingly it hasn’t been too much more chaotic than usual, and both kids have been really cooperative so far. My favorite moment was yesterday morning, though. I put Phoebe in her crib so I could wake up Enzo, and left her busy babbling away while I went into his room. He was already awake and the first thing he said was, “Phoebe talking.” I laughed and we went to say hi to her, and that was when Enzo asked me to put him in her crib, so I did. He then proceeded to say, “Mommy go away.” I had to get dressed anyway, so I complied while quietly listening to what was going on. I could hear baby babbles and Enzo making quiet little babbles back at her, so I peeked in. They were snuggled up and Enzo was talking to her while she smiled at him and he’d do twiddle-fingers on her chin. He must have sensed that I was there because he looked up, ceased what he was doing, and practically shooed me out of the room, “Mommy! Go away!”
I hope these little secret conversations always take place. It made my heart glad and put the biggest smile on my face. I hope they always confide in each other as they do now. 😉
That is the sweetest thing, I’m so glad he loves his little sister.
