relationship.

As I was updating the blogs we have for our kids, I noticed something in all the pictures I have taken. Bina and Devin have built such a cute little relationship these months since she was born. We had very few hiccups with Devin becoming the big Brother instead of being the baby.
He begged to hold Bina, and still does...even though they are almost the same size.
He loves when I can rock both of them in the rocking chair. He is always the first in her room when she wakes up, and if I am not quick enough he sneaks in her crib to pick her up.
He thought it was funny when I did the diaper changing and pajama rituals together when she was tiny.
Bina thinks Devin is funny, but don't we all. 
Devin shares the best with her, and has taken it upon himself to share his food at all meals. I love that he gives her the tiniest bites ever, and if he isn't sitting close to her...he makes Paul pass the bite to her. Paul will say "this next bite is courtesy of Devin!".
He is extremely protective, and most times cautious. The other day Sabrina had gotten in to Devin's bowl of cereal, and when Devin tried to fish it out of her mouth...she took a bite of his finger. He was so worried about her eating something she wasn't suppose to.
Those first few months of getting a routine were hard, but just like with most things in my life...I can look back and smile. 
I wouldn't recommend having babies close in age, but I can see the advantage that these two have in their relationship because they are babies together. 

They are definitely lucky to have each other.

These are so cute! Imagine that big brother protectiveness when she is old enough to get interested in boys!

They are so cute!! My youngest two are 20 months apart, and there were things that were hard when they were younger. But, they do get along so well with each other so it makes it all worth it!!

I remember when you were worried about him and the new baby. I also remember Devin brand new. In my mind he still is a little baby and I forget Bini is even here!

Such cute sibs! I love how his underwear is on backwards in the last picture. :) I always like taking pictures of my kids with their clothing creations.
