Babysitters R Us

We got to babysit baby Kalyn for the first time yesterday! Alex and I were so excited! He really was excited when I got out the play mat and the boppy and said they were for the baby. He showed Jo where they were right when they got here. He did great and was only a little jealous at times. Kalyn is a dream! She is so sweet and so good. I think she was a little scared by all the noise in the playroom but then realized it was fun. I had fun playing Mommy to her and it kind of eased some of my nerves about having our baby girl. The only tough part is that I cant trust Alex to be in reach of her without me right there. I am hoping that it gets better with age and having the baby here everyday. Wishful thinking, I know.

"sharing" his pretzels- dont worry Jo, she only had one :)

Baby Kalyn is so precious! It sounds like Alex was a big help...but I also think we are always going to have to be on our toes with the kids together.

Aww, what a great big brother he's going to be!

Oh my goodness she is so cute!! Good job Alex on practicing those big brother skills. Just stay away from those pretzels.
