Being a Big Brother

Most people have been asking me how Jonah is handling his new status of big brother.
First family picture

He's doing GREAT! He is such a sweet big bro. He's very gentle with Levi. He thinks his tiny feet are hilarious; He'll run up to Levi, use one finger to touch Levi's toes, laugh hysterically, and run away.

He cares a lot for him too. When I put Levi down for tummy-time, he tends to get a little fussy. Jonah gets very concerned, and will lay on his tummy next to his little brother and gently pat his back while talking gibberish to him. It's so sweet.

The only time that Jonah is not a big fan of being a big brother is when I'm nursing Levi. Otherwise, everything is great.

I think this transition was so smooth for him because of the grandparents. For three weeks there was a steady stream of them coming and going to help out. And every time a new set of grandparents came to visit there were gifts for Jonah and lots of good quality play time.

I'd like to thank everyone who was praying for smooth transition for Jonah, and a quick recovery for me. The Lord GREATLY blessed us, and I am so thankful.
