Brotherly Love...

Willsy...You love having a baby brother and often try and be a big helper.  Although, there are moments when you like to close your door and play by yourself.  I guess that is to be expected since you are a little older.  This summer has been rough because we haven't done a lot of the stuff that you love because of this move.  It is now almost September and I regret not getting you into more camps.  But, we just didn't know if we would be here.  So...digging, swimming in your pool, going to the playground, fishing, and taking exploration walks have been our summer.

I am thankful that I was able to get you into your preschool, because again, we are still here.  You love school and being with friends is a great outlet for you.  I have to admit, I will miss you those first couple of days.  You will get to go for lunch bunch and spend the whole afternoon at school, like the big kid you have become.

And because this summer has been low key, no vacation was had.  Daddy and I decided we needed a getaway.  So, we are headed to the Outer Banks in two weeks!  I love sharing a place like the Outer Banks with you because this is where I spent a lot of my summers growing up.  You will get to fish, build sand castles, and most importantly dig and swim in the pool.  Can't wait to spend this time with you, my sweet Bubsy.

Eli...Where to begin.  You are something special.  Definitely the baby.  Always wanting mommy to hold you.  But, if Willsy is around, forget it.  You would rather be close to him and do what he is doing.  It is the best of both worlds.  I have a feeling you will be easy to potty train because you will want to do what Will does.  Thank goodness for that.

You are still not the best sleeper.  Part of it, I know is that you need your own room.  You will go a couple nights, sleeping all the way through.  Then you just randomly wake up and want me to hold you and give you a bottle.  I know that you will start to sleep through the night on your own.  There are nights when I do ignore the crying and you fall back asleep, it is so hard when you are right there though.

You love to eat.  You can almost eat as much as your brother!  The only thing you haven't loved so far is pears.  Maybe it is the grainy texture.  Not sure.  You love protein for sure.  Chicken, hamburger, turkey, roast beef.  I think you might be a meat and potatoes kind of guy.

You are a bruiser, which is the nick name that Nana gave you.  You get into everything, climb everything, try and walk everywhere.  You are a VERY adventurous little baby!

Willsy and Eli...My wish right now is that you grow up to be best friends.  That you support and love one another, no matter what.  I love you both, always more than air.
