Reilly is a great big brother. Over the last several weeks I have watched him transition from a boss to a friend with Kate. The two of them are not at each others throats all the time, they actually play together. They make up games and use their imaginations and chase each other around the house. It’s so nice to see them interacting in this way. Kate WANTS someone to play with so she has adjusted from her dolls and kitchen and can be found driving a LEGO truck around the house and crashing it into a wall. She listens to Reilly and I can see that she looks up to him. It’s so cool.
Shea, you can see him melt around her. His tone of voice is tender and sensitive with her no matter what she is doing. (okay, the occasional Shea-zilla move gets her screamed at but generally speaking) She is constantly asking him to do things for her and he drops everything and does it. He often picks her up out of her crib and sends her downstairs to us. He likes being the little man in the house. I love the way he looks after the two of them and I’m so happy they have a big brother like Reilly. He is a sweetheart and full of love.
