When I was pregnant with Logan, I was always worried that I wouldn't get to spend as much time with him as I did with Stockton when he was born and that I would be missing out on spending one-on-one time with both of them. My sister would always tell me that it would be OK because I would get to see them as Brothers and there was something really special about that. I am starting to realize now what she meant. Logan has really started to love Stockton lately even though Stockton isn't always the nicest to him. There are 2 particular stories that I wanted to document so I could remember them.
#1: Stockton likes to climb into Logan's crib to play with his mobile, play with his stuffed animals, and turn the lamp on and off b/c he can reach it. Logan is normally a good sport even though he is mostly just getting trampled on the whole time. Now that he is sitting up, I think it is a little less torturous for him. On this particular occasion Stockton was playing and Logan was sitting there just looking at Stockton with the biggest grin on his face. Stockton kept playing and Logan just kept smiling. As soon as Stockton sat down beside him, Logan reached up, grabbed Stockton by the hair, and threw him down on the bed. I was so shocked, but it was hilarious to witness. Luckily Stockton thought it was funny, too. I am sure he wont think so for much longer.
#2: Stockton has a little buddy that we watch for a few hours every week. His name is Rhett. Logan was sitting in the floor playing with some of his trucks when Rhett decided that he wanted to play with them. So he went over and took them from Logan. Stockton (who takes toys from his brother ALL day long) witnessed his brother being picked on, ran over to Rhett, yelled what I can only assume were profanities, snatched the truck from Rhett, and gave it back to his brother. I hope he will always stick up for him like that.
