We had the boys close together on purpose, and risked our sanity in the hopes that they would become good friends and playmates. Tom and his brother Dan are three years apart in age and have always been close. Since I was an only child, and always wanted a sibling, it was of paramount importance that Sam have what I always lacked.
The last few months have been hard going. Sam was not in the mood to share. Not his toys, not his space, and definetely not his parents. It's been a chorus of "No! Mine!" for the last several months.
But now that John is crawling, sitting up, and showing some ego-enhancing real and true adoration for his older brother, Sam's heart has melted and he and Baby John are having a complete and total blast together.
