"Baby my, don you ky, baby my, don you ky.
Okay, baby, it okay, baby."
~J-Bear, singing her bedtime song to her brother
when he is upset during his diaper changes
Overheard while passing the (stinky) local cigar store during an grocery run with Dad:
"If someone gave me a box of cigars for a present, I would say 'thank you'
and then throw time in the trash."
G-Bear: "Oh, he is so cute! I love it when his eyes are open!
J-Bear, come here, Baby's eyes are open!"
J-Bear: "Eye? Eye? Oh, see! Eye!"
Overheard during family play time:
"J-Bear, do you want to play Duplos? Okay, c'mon!"
~E-Bear, who is up for Biggest Brother of the Year Award
"Can I hold Baby?"
"Can I give Baby a kiss?"
"Oh, he is so cute, he is just like a little baby Moses!"
"Oh, don't cry, you're okay."
~Buddy Bear, a most affectionate older brother
"Baby nee banket. I give baby blanket."
~J-Bear, a very helpful older sister
E-Bear: "Mom, can I hold baby for you so that you can make dinner?"
Me: "Sure, E-Bear. But, he is a little fussy right now. Will it bother you if he cries?"
E-Bear: "No, it won't bother me. I just worry about him and what he needs when he cries.
It isn't that the crying bothers ME."
