Patch loves his little brother, who he's started calling "Buddy" and each morning he gives him about a half dozen kisses before climbing up on my lap next to the little guy to relax.
Maggie is fascinated with his tiny little fingers and toes and loves touching his tiny chubby cheeks while giggling.
And Sadie is the one who can almost always make him stop crying. If he's crying in the car you'll hear her little voice start to sing a lullaby and suddenly the crying will stop as James listens to his sister's voice singing a made up song about loving him. She relishes being the biggest and the one who is able to hold him on the couch when some toddler related disaster inevitably comes up throughout the day and I need two free hands to come to rescue whoever it is that has gotten themselves into trouble.
In other James news, we still can't decide what color hair he has. Sometimes it almost looks light brown. Other times it looks like a bright golden color. And the pediatrician said "A red headed baby!" when she walked in the room, so sometimes his hair definitely looks red. It almost always looks red in pictures, even without any editing or filters to adjust the lighting (which I almost always have to do since the lights in our house tend to be on the dim side).
