While getting ready for bed on Monday night (our second night home):
Sam: I love Mama.
Mama: Mama loves you. So does Daddy.
Sam: I love Daddy.
Mama: Do you love Sophie?
Sam: I love Sophie.
Sam: I think so! Maybe... Just a little bit.
On Tuesday, he bit her.
Here they are riding in our fancy, new-to-us stroller, compliments of our friends Karen and Jeff. Sam calls it "the roller coaster."
They're warming up to each other, though haven't had to spend too much time together since Sophie (and Mama) has still been on China time most of this week. So she's up when he's sleeping and vice versa. You can tell Sam is trying hard, but that the adjustment to no longer being the center of the universe is not fun. I am making a special effort to give him some one-on-one attention and snuggle time.
For her part, Sophie doesn't take too much gruff from him. Seems like she'll be able to stand up for herself!
One week down...
