I've had several people ask how Andrew does with the babies. Well, at first he ignored them. I thought maybe it was because they have Down syndrome and that is not accepted in his country. But lately he has been paying more attention to Mackenzie. He will go over to her highchair and smile at her. She looks at him with her big brown eyes with a little uncertanity. I think he likes her! I think she's not too sure about him!
We were getting ready to leave the other day and I asked Andrew to hold John-David. I went to hand JD to him and Andrew didn't know what to do. I showed him how to place his hands and arms around JD. As soon as he did John-David wrapped his arms around Andrew and laid his head on his shoulder. It was so precious! I went to grab my camera when Madison came around the corner and saw the two of them. The first thing Andrew told her was, "I the big brother!" I think his smile says it all!
Maybe he just didn't know what to do with the babies. He's never been around little ones before. He's never been in a family before. This is all new to him and he's learning how to be a son and a big brother!
