I have to say that the boys have gotten along pretty good this break! I don't know if it's all the new toys they got; that are keeping them occupied, or if they are just growing up a bit?
I've always been envious of my sister's kids connecting more than my own. Elijah was born, and his brother Evan got in his face kissing and telling him he was cute all the time. As soon as Elijah was big enough to walk, he was accepted as one of the big kids. Mica could care less about babies at the time. He did his best to stay away from Isaak. I tried including him. Then when Isaak was old enough to walk, Mica called him a baby. He wouldn't allow him to play with him.
It just seems like they are playing better together. More so than they used to. As soon as I say something like, "WOW you boys are playing so good together!" they start fighting soon after. I should just keep my mouth shut. Enjoy the peace.
Mica said, "Isaak you're a friend to me now." Isaak said, "You're not my friend! You're my bover." *brother
The other day I said, "You two are so cute!" Isaak said, "Mom I'm the only one that's cute. I'm the smallest. Smaller things are cute." I replied with, "Well you're a cute 4 year old and Mica's a cute 7 year old. How about that?" Isaak said, "I guess so."
Whenever I give Isaak a snack, he asks for more to give it to Mica.
With all that being said, they still wrestle, kick, punch and hit. They happily do these things until someone gets hurt; then it's over. Isaak wants me to feel sorry for him; just about every time. He sticks out his bottom lip and says, "Mica punched me!" My response every time is, "What did you do to him?" I don't feel too sorry for either one, when they both took part in it. Some of that is just being boys though.
Here's a unedited Christmas photo of the bovers *brothers:
