Bean and Sprout

The first meeting of Bean and Sprout didn’t go off completely smoothly. Upon first seeing him, Bean wrinkled her nose into her trademark stinker face and whined.

In her defense, it was nap time. I tried to get some pictures that first day, but they came out quite blurry. I kind of still like them though simply because they are the only documentation of her mood.

She almost cried and said, “No!” a whole bunch before proceeding to flail around in protest…

Then she tried to hit him while saying, “No!”

At that point we decided not to try and push her anymore. Meeting over, downstairs to play, and then back over to Aunt Ruth’s house for the rest of the day.

She is very slowly warming up to him, but we still have to remind her to be gentle and if she’s in a cranky mood, forget it. I did, however, manage to get a few pictures of them this morning and Sprout was not maimed in the process. Progress!

  1. Awwwww – seeing those reminds me so much of when Malachi and Graham were both babies and he would say, “two baby!” Such a precious time!

    Bean really isn’t old enough for imaginary play, but sometimes it helps to give an older child their very own “New Baby” to take care of and mimic Mama’s actions with a new sibling. Can’t hurt to try? She’ll get used to the idea that he’s part of the family.

  8. Wow. They look soooo different! I don’t think he looks yellow… just a nice tan. πŸ™‚ You’ll love that olive skin as he gets older! πŸ™‚

    He is beautiful. And such a cute little chunky monkey. Congrats!

  9. I hope Bean continues to warm up to little Sprout. It is quite an adjustment for everyone but they’ll be the best of friends soon. πŸ™‚
