As I mentioned last week, you received a Graco RoomFor2 stroller, from Mommy’s registry at Target. Well, we unboxed it this weekend and your brother Jack already started putting it to use.
Not the actual stroller, but its unattached wheels.
He immediately began using them as cannons for Pandy to shoot across the living. Soon after, his panda bear collected an army of other stuffed animals to help shoot the artillery.
From there, Jack insisted a make a video of him racing his cars, so I did. As you can see in the video, by this point it was Ellie the Elephant who was using the stroller tires as markers for the race track.
That night, Jack went ahead and also broke out your new bath toys, which are a gift from some friends we met for lunch on Sunday.
So I’m thinking this is going to be a reoccurring thing. In the upcoming 3 months before you are born, Jack will inspect and test out any of your new toys or gadgets that could possibility provide entertainment and engagement for him.
I suppose it won’t hurt anything. After all, it’s not like your’re going to be aware of whether or not your new belongings were “lightly used” beforehand.
And I think it’s good for your brother Jack because he gets to be more involved with your arrival.
He can truly feel a part of what’s going on. It’s important to me he doesn’t feel left out or overshadowed once you get here.
I want to proactively do my best to give you both equal, yet separate and unique, attention and quality time.
Because of the 5 and a half year difference between the two of you, I think it will be fairly easy.
I won’t be catering to 2 babies, but instead, one baby and one boy. Those are two different worlds, as far as I’m concerned.
However, it has become apparent that despite your age difference, you’ll both be sharing your toys.
