Things I found myself telling Jer today...

"Suave con the baby!" as he forcefully rocked Timmy in the baby seat (okay, my Spanglish is pretty bad too)
"No, don't lick the baby!"
"Please don't blow your nose on the baby." (as he put his nose on the baby and blew)
"Don't put the blanket on the baby's face." (as he tries to use the burp cloth as a blanket )
"Don't cough on the baby!" (as he purposely leans over and coughs all over Timmy)
Jeremiah really does love his baby brother and wants to help take care of him, but he's still a little rough (which is to be expected).
But, on a positive note, Jeremiah did tuck the burp cloth nicely around Timmy in his baby seat, helped do the dishes, and wipe off the place mats and table for us. I do think he'll be a great big brother!

Awww... yeah. All things I tell Benjamin daily. Well, okay, variations of those things. Mainly just, "DON'T TOUCH THE BABY'S FACE." I say "don't" so much in a day to that boy it just gets depressing. When it gets really bad, I have Josh watch the baby and Olivia while Benjamin and I go out somewhere for a little bit. It's rough being the middle child. (I know! I was one!)
