All You Need Is Love . . . And a Little Space

Baby Owen is mauled (I mean VERY loved) by his big brother Jack all the time.

It is difficult to remember that Jack is only two and just wants to love his brother.

I find myself saying the same thing over and over . . .

"Don't cover Owen's face with your blanket!"

"Don't kiss him on the face!"

"Don't push his baby swing so high!"

"Quit trying to step on his head!"

"Baby Owen doesn't need to drink your chocolate milk!"

"Don't shove your toys in his face!"

I am grateful Jack loves Owen so much and wants him to be involved with family life . . . we just have to remind Jack to give Baby Owen a little space once in awhile too.

Hehe, this made me giggle. We're experiencing the same thing with our new baby sister. It touches my heart how much these big brothers want to give so much love to their new little siblings.

I used to push Brent in the stroller when we were around Jack and Owen's age. My mom said I always made a point to do a wheelie. Then I watched Brent pick on Jason. And then Jason picked on Craig. Such a vicious cycle :)

If it makes you feel any better, Carson is 5 and I am telling him the exact same things about Damon! I guess we have to be grateful that they love their little brothers but geesh! Poor babies!
