Becky, Aaron and Hudson came home from the hospital yesterday and after I picked Cohen up from school we headed right over to see them. Cohen was so “cited” [excited] he almost couldn’t stand it. Uncle Aaron let him hold the baby which had Cohen over the moon. He kissed him, played with his hands and feet, and then when Becky had taken the baby back, Cohen went through the bag finding all kinds of things he could “help” with. He found the blue nose sucker [“my favorite!” he said- somehow Mommy doesn’t remember it that way!]; the tiny fingernail clippers [“I will be very careful”], and a host of other things.
The best part of the visit was when Cohen leaned down and whispered in Hudson’s ear, “Do you want to be my best friend?” The collective “aww” filled the room.
… my suspicions have been confirmed: Cohen is going to be the best big brother! [So long as we can keep him from “helping” too much *grin*]
