I think this has been said a lot recently, but Hayden and Layla are getting on really well. He’s being really patient with her (considering he is 3 and she doesn’t understand any of his orders (i.e. “don’t touch that Monster truck Layla it’s not for babies”)). He often will just bring her toys if he comes across what he defines as a baby toy. He loves giving her things and then he’ll tell us “Layla likes it” and it brings great satisfaction to him! You never know how kids are going to develop and pay attention to their siblings so it’s fun to see how much he cares about her. Hopefully gives us an insight into what a wonderful and caring man he will grow to be!!!
He does a similar thing regarding making her laugh. There was a time when he played peek a boo with her in the car and she found it hilarious. Since then it’s old news to her and she wants a new trick. Well Hayden will still try peek a boo even though she is over it and then he’ll tell us “Layla’s laughing!” ( even though she is just starting out the window!! – we just agree and encourage Hayden – we don’t want to hurt his feelings!
