The 1st time Gavin saw Linnaea, he went straight to the bassinet, patted her and said "It's ok baby sister. I'm right here". He is such a wonderful helpful brother. When we woke up Friday, our first day home, we all played in Gavin's room the whole morning. He wanted to read letters to her. He's excited to have her around.
Gavin comforts her when she's crying. You'll hear "I'm coming baby sister!", or "Oh, I'll get her pacifier (or silky blankey)". Or sometimes, he covers his ears with both hands and says "Feed her".
I think he has much more fun riding on the stroller this way, now that I let him.
