Old Babies Watching New Babies

June 11th, 2015 by Aubri


“The joy of teaching a baby to walk and talk is an indescribable one, enhanced only when there are older children to share that joy with. If there is a anything more inspiring than watching a new baby sleeping in his crib, it is watching an “old baby” watching the new baby sleeping in his crib. A two-year-old standing on tiptoe, peeking into the crib; a four year old on hands and knees, laughingly trying to teach the baby to crawl; a six year old sitting beside the baby’s bed, thoughtfully considering the intricacies of a tiny baby’s ear; an eight year old trying to teach his baby brother how to hold a football; a ten year old tenderly placing her favorite doll in baby sister’s bassinet; a twelve year old awkwardly and surreptitiously lifting baby sister from her crib or a quick by loving hug….these are the things that make motherhood wonderful.” Teresa Bloomingdale
