Nicky is getting ready to be a big brother. He’s so good a taking care of the little baby doll we got him. He likes to put her to sleep in her bassinet and prop her up at the table to eat when he’s eating. She’s been fed all kinds of food, including milk poured all over her face. He brushes her teeth and gives her toys and pacifiers. One of his favorites is to sit on the bed with her and read “The Little Engine That Could.” This morning I watched him take his baby doll from the living room into the baby’s room and put her into the bassinet to go to sleep, all unprompted. He’s getting ready for the big transition from pampered baby to helpful big brother!
