Big Brother Marty

With the recent addition of his sister Adele and with 18 month old Silas, Marty is the attentive big brother of two now.  Marty adores his family.  He loves  to watch movies side by side with his brother and goes to check on little sister in her swing.  Marty and Silas share every mealtime where Silas the explorer encourages Marty to try new foods by example.  Marty usually sticks to the same foods but will try a morsel as he watches Silas grab and munch.  When Adele came home, Marty proudly held her (with  supervision, of course).  He did have some adjustments when Mom was not readily available, he liked to go and empty out all the toy bins on his shelf–a game Silas enjoyed too!  When it is time for his brother to go to bed, Marty has a moment of mourning then realizes he has his parent’s undivided attention for the next 30 minutes and usually snuggles up.  It is so wonderful to watch Marty adore his family–I cannot wait to see their relationships evolve as they get older when the laughter kicks into high gear, the ball throwing gets a little competitive and perhaps sister Adele will teach both of her brothers some kitchen play moves!
