It's virtualy impossible to get 2 babies, 23 months and 3 weeks old, to sit still for a picture. And, look at the camera. And, say cheese.
However, Ty looking at his Baby Bro here is so "him". He is OBSESSED with his brother. In a good way. He gives him at least 325 kisses a day, 293 pats and rubs, and says his name about oh...692 times each day. I'll be reminding him of this loving behavior when they aren't feeling too lovey-dovey down the road!When he wakes up and walks down the steps, he's asking "where's Ace" in his country Kentucky accent. If Ace is snuggled in his swing or bean bag and Ty doesn't hear him or see him, he asks for "Acey". He "aww's" and "coo's" over him. He asks to hold him. Or, actually it's something like "Mommy, I hold myself". He jumps up on the couch, holds his hands up reaching for him and then demands the Boppy pillow. He is so proud of himself when he holds him. Sometimes he even tries to share Ace's bean bag with him (Ace will be one tough cookie to survive Ty's lovin' ).
Ty is so proud to introduce his brother to others...he grins ear to ear and points to him with his long fingers. He kisses him goodnight. And, goodmorning. And, bye-bye. This totally melts my heart. This is why I have 2 little boys and I
think I want a third. Yes, I'll admit it. I'm overwhelmed at times, my house is a mess, my fabulous whirlpool bathrub resembles a kiddie pool, and I couldn't tell you the last time I went to the potty or took a shower all.by.myself. But, these babies...they're mine. Words can't describe the love I have for them (even when they throw tempertantrums on newly paved parking lots with a white seersucker outfit on. I'm laughing about that 3 days after the fact...thankyouverymuch).
Oh, and while Ty Baby truly does love Ace Man...he still won't give up his pacy to his lil' bro. That whole idea of "when Acey gets here he'll need your pacy"...yeah, it didn't work so much. Ty LOVES to replace Ace's pacy that has fell out of his mouth. But, give Ace "Ty's pacy" as he calls it (I'm not sure why he needs to talk about himself in the third person...) is not going to happen anytime soon. Any other ideas?
