Both Brandon and Brianna are at the age (almost 16 months old) where they are really starting to pick things up and you see changes literally over night. This morning was no exception as Brianna did two different things that I just had to share.
First, Brandon had had a bad night and I was up with him at 4 a.m. with him tossing and turning and just not able to get comfortable. We usually don't wake them up until 5:45 a.m. so he was well off schedule. He finally got fussy enough that we gave him his morning bottle which made him happy and thus passing back out asleep. Guen put him on the floor in the living room passed out and we got Brianna up, fed, and dressed at the normal time. It was finally getting around 6:15 a.m. and we knew we had to wake Brandon up. Jokingly, I told Brianna to go wake Brandon up. To my surprise, she quickly walked over to him and patted his back saying "Brandon" the best she could. It was a cute moment.
Second, Brianna loves to go to school (daycare). When it's time to leave, I always just ask Brianna if she is ready and she quickly grabs her blanky and runs to the door. Well this time Brandon was sitting in the middle of the floor fussing like he is going to be left behind. Again, jokingly, I told Brianna we still have to get Brandon. When I said this she walked over to him, reached down, and grabbed his hand the same way I make her hold my hand when we are going into and out of school from the car. I got a good laugh out of that.
I have said many times before that I think Brianna would be happy if she was an only child. She usually wants all the attention and her favorite word is "me". None the less it's nice to see her understanding who Brandon is and that he matters just as much....even if she doesn't always like it.
OMGosh....where have we gone?
