We spent time with my husband’s brother and his family. Their baby is roughly three months older than ours. We don’t spend enough time together, and I was worried baby’s stranger anxiety would kick in. But I needn’t have! She took to her kin like they had never been apart.
The two little cousins were so chuffed to see one another. Fascination on our baby’s part, as she spends most of her time in the company of adults. She followed him around, mimicking his every move.
It was so lovely to see! But they had to be watched constantly, as eye-poking appeared to be part of their greeting ritual. He gave her plenty of bear hugs, which we jokingly called rugby tackles. She took it all in her stride…I think! 🤣
We definitely need to do this more often!
