Brotherly Love

Do you know what the cutest thing ever was? The morning after we brought Carson home from the hospital, Eli's first sentence of the day was, "See Carson, Daddy!" We were shocked at how well Carson was received.
Eli's been so nice to his new brother. He hasn't even swung an arm at him yet.
Sure, he helped Carson catch some air in his bouncer, and yeah he's shaken the pack 'n play a few too many times, but I don't think his brotherly intentions have ever been malicious.
And sure he's been a crazy man since we brought the new baby home -- refusing to eat, throwing unprovoked tantrums, saying "No way!" to every question we ask him, seeking out items around the house he knows he's not supposed to have.
But we have to give him credit for lasting all the way to Carson's one week birthday before having a toddler meltdown and screaming "All done baby!" after I brought Carson downstairs this morning.
I'm sure one day they'll be the best of friends...

I love it. I can see a gleam of mischief in those baby blue eyes.

Eli is a giant compared to little Carson! We love seeing as many pictures as possible- we don't feel so far away!

We caught a glimpse here of that mischievous side of Eli when he was grabbing things he shouldn't have and gleefully giggling while running as far away as fast as he could from his mother.

I, too, laughed so much at the "All done baby!" At least he's verbalizing his feelings.
