Brothers

There's been a shift in the boys' relationship recently. They interact more. Meaning that Baby Plum responds to Little Elvis a lot more.

They fuss some. One boy squeals or shreiks, and I need to step in and either remove a toy from Baby Plum's mouth (Little Elvis: "It's wet! Wipe it off, Mommy!") or I take a baby toy out of Little Elvis' hot little hands.
But there have been moments. Moments where they do things together and giggle with each other. Granted, a few of these occasions have happened because Little Elvis helped Baby Plum do something that was not Baby Plum-approved.

Twice I've caught them both on the top bunk of Little Elvis' bed giggling. Since this is not an acceptable place for a baby who seems intent on doing the dangerous, Bob installed a gate at the foot of the bunk bed with a latch.

(In other news, Baby Plum is FINALLY walking! We have video and I just have to download it. He is so, so proud of himself. And we got 7 inches of snow last night! That's a very, very rare thing for Mississippi.)

What a little stinker :), and hooray for walking... kind of. Two on two legs is definitely a whole new world of hurt. Fun that they are learning to play with eachother more, I remember that with ours and it is so wonderful for those moments before someone ends up crying.

Ooh, sibling laughter! I LOVE the sound of my boys giggling! I think I would leave the gate on the bunk open (intentionally) whenever I needed a little pick-me-up!
