no sibling jealousy here...

"You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them."
~Desmond Tutu
ella and bennett absolutely love having a baby brother. ella wants him in the same room as her, and she is always asking if she can hold him, give him a bottle, put in his pacifier. she talks very sweetly to him and is very understanding when he is fussy and takes up all of mommy's time. she even provides some entertainment and dances for him.

bennett... well, i'm not sure if he realizes mason is his little brother or if he just thinks he is a little toy. but judging from the way he squeals in excitement and does his little dance every time mason enters the room, he is happy to have him in our family. and he certainly isn't stingy with kisses. he's very eager to give them at every opportunity, even if it means climbing across mommy while he is eating, or leaning his entire weight onto mason in the swing or bouncy seat, and even in spite of some adamant "no's!" and "not right now, buddy's" from mommy and daddy.

he loves his brother and loves to hold him. "thirsty, buddy?"
