Brotherly Bonding

Last Sunday was the perfect Sunday. Everyone was happy and cute and we had a lot of fun -- starting with popping some popcorn.
Is it weird that I'm so proud of Carson's round head? After worrying about Eli's flat head for the whole first year of his life, I worked hard to keep Carson's head round.
After popcorn we watched the thunderstorm out the window. Thunderstorms always take me back to my Georgian childhood. I loved sitting in my Barbie closet and listening to the rain pound against the roof. Yeah. I had a whole closet specifically reserved for all things Barbie. I'm just now realizing that's a little weird.
Carson is awesome at tummy time. Perhaps the reason his head has remained round.
Eli still loves to hold Carson.
Carson on the other hand...I'm not sure he's a huge fan of the seating arrangement.
Eli made me get some books so he could read to Carson. It was the cutest thing I've ever seen. Again. I don't know that Carson enjoyed the cuteness as much as Eli and I did.
He may not be able to talk yet, but those eyes are definitely saying, "Mom! Get me outta here!"
Then he came to terms with the fact that I was going to keep him there until he got hurt or until Eli was done "reading to him." Sorry Carson. You'll soon learn that I'm not one to pass up a Kodak moment just because you feel your life is in jeopardy.

A few days ago Eli brought our umbrella stroller in the house. Before long we realized if we put Carson in the stroller and had Eli push him around, both kids were as happy as could be! Why have I not thought of this sooner?!? 
I love seeing Eli and Carson growing up and getting more interactive with each other.

I also love the picture of Carson on his tummy. Adorable!

It was fun to see the brotherly love in action last week. I'm still waiting on the post that shows Eli's "cousinly love" toward Spencer...

And here's another vote for the Carson tummy time photo being so cute. Loved all the poses of Eli holding Carson. Sweet, cute and funny!

If you ask me, I think Eli looks like he has things under control enough that you could probably leave him in charge for a short date. Probably not dinner and a movie yet...but dinner alone is probably fine.
