With Jonathan getting older, they are playing together more. Often times it's Jonathan chasing after Kaitlyn, trying to see what his big sister is doing and wanting to be part of it. Kaitlyn's response is usually, "No, Jonathan. Go away! It's my toy!" We've been trying to teach her to calmly tell Mommy or Daddy, "I don't like what Jonathan is doing, please move him." Sometimes she does, but mostly she screams at him. The other day as she and I played downstairs, we heard Jonathan on the baby monitor "talking" in his room after waking up from a nap. Without skipping a beat, Kaitlyn said, "No, Jonathan, I'm playing with this toy!" He wasn't even in the room...or on the same floor of the house. Sigh.
Thursday afternoon was so different. The three of us laughed, danced and played together and it was awesome. Kaitlyn had such a great time with Jonathan and he was so excited to play with her. Here are some funny videos I got:
When Ron works his later shift, he usually gets home as the kids are getting ready for bed. The kids can hear him when he walks in the door downstairs and they get super excited that Daddy's home. Here's a video of the excitement. Who wouldn't love to walk in the door to a greeting like this?
