This post marks the second month that I'm joining in with the 'Siblings' link up hosted by Lucy from Dear Beautiful and I can't quite believe that it's been a month already since I wrote this post. Lucas is now very nearly 8 weeks old and the weeks just really seem to have flown by!
I'm making a conscious effort to make sure his arrival isn't impacting too much on Sophia. Sometimes I can see she gets frustrated being told to wait for our help or attention. Sophia knows that she has to share both her Daddy and I with her little brother and though when she's older she'll never remember life as an only child, I would think that right now it must be sometimes quite difficult to accept that where once she had all of our attention and all of our time, she now has to share it.
I am so incredibly proud of how Sophia has been and how she continues to be with her little brother. When she wakes up in the morning the first person she looks and asks for is him. She likes to know what Lucas is doing and where he is going, she got incredibly upset when I left him at home with my Mum whilst I did the nursery run the other morning. She loves to hold him especially his hands and kiss him...alot! She isn't fazed when he whinges or cries and copies all the phrases I use to try and soothe him rather than want to hand him back.
Lucas is much more alert now he smiles when he hears Sophia's voice or laugh and you can see in his eyes that he's trying to locate her whenever he can hear her in the room. Sophia is loving that little bit more interaction he gives her through smiles and baby babble.
It's still a novelty to see photos of them together and I treasure them all. I feel so proud when I look at them, they literally make my heart want to burst. It honestly is all I could have wished for and more.
