Tyler is still very much the protective big brother, with Beau taking up the role of the cheeky little brother. Anytime I see them interact with each other it's evident how much they love each other, with Tyler always wanting to be around his brother, who he calls "lovely" and Beau looking at Tyler with big, wide eyes and little grins.
Tyler regularly tells me that Beau is his best friend ever and he always wants to be around his baby brother, always wanting to include him in his imaginary games and pretend that Beau is his 'customer' in a shop or restaurant. It's very sweet.
Tyler's dying for Beau to get out and about with him in the garden and play in his new playhouse. He asked me today if Beau was going to walk and I had to explain that he's a little young yet, but I'm betting it won't be long until Beau is following his big brother around.
Beau is now able to sit up unaided, so it sits by Tyler and takes great delight in watching him play - even trying to get his hands on some of the toys too. Hitting the toy pots and pans off the floor is a new favourite pastime of his.
This coming month we don't have much planned, apart from little walks here and there, but I know that these two boys of mine will have fun wherever we go, even if it's just to the countryside to throw leaves - like in these photos taken just before the cold January rain arrived.
I love watching these two little boys of mine grow up together and as their mother, it makes me so incredibly happy to know that they're already the best of friends.
