The Siblings Project - Ethan & Sullivan, February and March 2019

Ethan is still completely besotted with Sullivan and it's clear that the feeling in mutual. Their first month together went well, as they got to know each other and Ethan got used to being a big brother, and there being a baby in the house, for the first time.

And since then, their bond has only grown.

We are so proud of Ethan and how he has taken it all in his stride. He is a very caring boy, don't get me wrong, and was very interested and excited throughout my pregnancy. But I guess you never know how a child will react when a sibling comes along and with Ethan being five and a half when Sullivan came into the world, we did wonder if it might take some adjusting for him.

Three months in and Ethan still thinks Sulley is the best thing since sliced bread. Making up nicknames for him, giving him a fuss, barging into our bedroom in the morning just to see his baby brother, picking out toys he think he will like (of course, Sulley just stares wide-eyed at anything he is shown!).

As Sullivan's eyesight and awareness has grown stronger, he is working us all out and he turns when one of us walks into the room, or if he hears us speak. Especially Ethan. When he hears Ethan talk to him, his face lights up and Ethan seems to love making his brother smile and gurgle.

It's wonderful to see them together and to see how Ethan is doing in his big brother role. Long may it continue this way...!
