brotherly love...

when i found out i was pregnant again, honestly, i felt a little guilty. i felt as if canon was going to have to grow up too fast. like i was cutting short his infant stage, and forcing him into toddler hood. when i found out we were having a boy, i felt a little less guilty. i thought that if they were going to be so close in age that maybe since the baby was a boy, they would be best buddies. at least that was what i was hoping. i prayed and prayed that the transition would be easy for canon. i prayed he wouldn't have jealousy issues. i prayed he would be nice to the baby! boy, if i knew then what i knew now, i would have cut tons of worrying out of my life! canon is the best big brother and loves ledger to pieces. sometimes a little too much! he loves to help. he throws ledgers diapers from the night in the trash each morning without asking (i'm sure it has to do with the fact that he just likes to flip the diaper pail!). he is the first to acknowledge ledger when he's crying. he likes to put his passy in his mouth. canon cannot go to bed without kissing ledger nite-nite. he wants to kiss him first before me! we taught him to be "gentle" when touching him, and 97% of the time, he remembers! and most of all, he loves to hold him. he throws a fit when we try to take ledger away. good thing ledger is a good sport! when i see canon holding him and loving on him, it is the most beautiful, heart warming picture for this mommy! i love you, canon and ledger! i'm so thankful your friendship has already begun to blossom...
