With K approaching the four month age, I think it’s time we did a status report on how M & K have been doing.

If I had to sum it up with one word, I’d have to say “PRECIOUS.”

From the beginning, K has fixated on M.  I remember asking their pediatrician if it was normal for K to make eye contact with her sister more than me.  Naturally, her pediatrician said it was normal and it was because M was much more animated than I was.

Now, K absolutely adores her older sister.  Every little move that M makes is followed by a sweet smile or giggle by her little sister.  K is amazed by all the things that M can do.  I can see in K’s eyes that she cannot wait to be able to run, jump, and play around like her big sister.  It’s truly amazing to see all that love she has for her M.

In return, M really loves K.  Whenever we come across relatives we haven’t seen, or even strangers, she never fails to introduce those people to her baby “stister.”  On days that M and I go out on our little mommy/daughter days, she will find herself reminded of K constantly.  We were at the grocery store and heard a baby cry, M turns and tells me, “That sounds like my baby sister, K.”

When asked if we should leave the baby with a relative or a friend, M’s reaction is always, “No, she has to come home with us!”

Every morning, when they both wake up, they have to lie down together on a pillow and just hug and cuddle.  M shower’s K with kisses.  K turns towards her big sister with loving eyes and works on her reaching and touching skills by going for M’s face.  I have TONS of pictures of their time together each morning.

Playing is becoming more and more of a real thing between them now.  As K is getting older, the playtime is getting to be more interactive.  M has a “silly walk” that she does that always gets K smiling and laughing.

I love the bond they are building.  I love the relationship they are forming.

I know that as they get older, there will be fights.  I know there will be misunderstandings.  I know there will be drama.  I know there will be tears.  I know there will be downs.

I also know that there will be ups.  There will be heart-to-heart sister talks.  I know there will be things they will tell each other that they might not tell me.  I know there will be hugs.  I know there will be laughter.  I know there will be fun.

I love watching these girls grow together.

Anything involving both kiddos is hard work. I don’t know how other moms do it while looking absolutely calm and collected. 

I always feel like I’m bumbling around and so uncoordinated and not graceful at all!

Why we decided to go to the zoo is beyond me….

Ok, I’m exaggerating…. It wasn’t THAT bad, but it was definitely hard. 

For starters, we have a double stroller. Then, we obviously have to carry around half of our belongings to accommodate the baby…

Maybe if I was breastfeeding, it would have been a little easier. Having to carry around bottles, water and formula was just bulky and such a hassle. 

Then, the logistics. 

M wanted to see and do a lot of things.  K just wanted to eat. 

I felt that I probably spent most of my time sitting on some shades table feeding K and allowing her some time out of her carrier…

It was definitely not easy and I can clearly remember why we never to M anywhere like that when she was that young. However, Hubby was on vacation and we felt that M deserved some fun time and we decided to suck it up and just go. 

I’m glad we went. The whole experience just left Hubby and I absolutely exhausted!
