Wyatt is lucky to have been born into a family with two older brothers waiting for him.
They are very excited to have him around.
They're learning to be really great helpers. Fetching diapers and binkies. And they always come running in concern when they hear Wyatt cry.
Jonas is the most aggressively possessive of the baby.
He was pretty concerned about that big ugly stumpy thing on Wyatt's belly. So two days after we got home, he did him a favor, and pulled it off.
And I let out the gasp heard round the world! He was in my lap at the time, Jonas just works fast.
But you know, two weeks later Wyatt has healed up just fine, he's got a really cute looking belly button, and I see no long-term negative effects of the "premature stump removal" by Dr. Jonas.
If only I could promise Wyatt that nothing like this would ever happen again, but as I watch Owen and Jonas wrestle on the living room floor, I think it's an unrealistic goal.
Wyatt, I think you and your brothers will end up causing each other quite a lot of physical pain throughout your lives. But, although I will never as a female understand it, I think it is all in the name of "brotherly" love.
