Warren is so proud to be a big brother. He’s had over a year and a half to get used to the idea. Now that Maddie is here he looks for every opportunity to be next to her, to hold her hand, to make her laugh. What joy seeing your babies get along brings!
But my good friend Christy was wise in thinking that even with his excitement he might become a tad weary of all the doting and gift bearing that would come with a new baby sister. And while she made one of the most beautiful quilts I’ve ever seen for Maddie:
She included this specially made T-shirt just for Renny:
Because he’s a TREEmendous big brother!
I told him that a package was coming for Maddie and that there might be something in it for him, as well. He couldn’t have been more excited! When it finally came we ripped it open to find his new shirt. He put it on immediately. He has barely worn anything else since.
The truth of that was evident when he sat on my lap and stated, “Mama. My shirt smells like butter!” After about 4 days straight I absolutely agreed.
