31 for 21 day 29: Brother and Sister

I honestly thought that when we brought Kailey home, that brother and sister bond would be there and would be perfect. I thought Colin would dote on her and smother her with hugs and kisses just like he does with us. I was shocked when it was quite the opposite. In fact, I have been disappointed that he isn't more interested in her. Don't get me wrong, he WILL give her kisses and when no one is around, we often find him entertaining her by playing peek-a-boo, trying to give her her empty bottle, or will just play with whatever she is playing with as well. He definitely doesn't like to be forced into doing anything with her, which I think is why we see more of the playing together when we are watching from the other room. Kailey loves him, but I think she has a ways to go before Colin is as interested in her. I am hoping that as she becomes more mobile, he will take more of an interest in playing with her.

Tonight, Chris and I were both in the kitchen and we heard Kailey squealing like she often does when she is happy or laughing. We peeked in and this is what we saw...






I guess Colin wanted to play and his only option was to sit on her lap. She got him back though by slapping his back and grabbing at his clothes. I guess we have a lot of days like this in our future...

Oh my goodness. I love how he's checking his blind spots as he backs up. Kailey's smile is awesome- you can tell she loves him!!!
