Last week, when Mia woke up from a nap and I was busy with something, I asked Austin to go into her room and talk to her while I finished. He has done this for me before and I actually love listening to him. On this particular day he went in and went through his usual routine.
"Hi, big gill!"
"Hi, pretty gill!"
And then there was a rustling that I couldn't place, followed by more sweet talk.
When I went in, this is what I found.
Yep, he climbed in the crib with her and had turned on her mobile. He also determined that she needed medicine and was trying diligently to open the tylenol and give her some. Thank God for safety caps!
This is now his new fun thing. He loves it so much that he has gotten overeager on a couple occasions and woken her up. Mommy does not appreciate that! However, I know there won't always be this much helpfulness and love expressed toward Mia, so I am soaking in the sweetness while I can.
