This morning at breakfast Devin and I were chatting and he again brought up the fact that he wants another brother or sister.
Devin: "Mama, I want another baby sister."
Me: "You want another baby sister?" (Here we go again!)
Devin: "No, I want another baby brother."
Me: "Ok, we'll see."
Devin: "Not one like Logan though."
Me: "What do you mean?, Why not like Logan?"
Devin: "I just want a friend."
That's all he said...I wanted to pry and find out more, but my heart was broken and I feared that maybe I really didn't want to hear any more.
What does this mean??? Have my worst fears come true? Will Logan not be good enough for him? Will he always wish he had a typical brother to play with?
Lately, I've been excited about them playing together....but it's a little sad when Devin has to use his imagination when they play. For example, I will ask what they are doing and Devin will say they are playing hide and go seek, but Logan is just sitting there and Devin is hiding him under a box or blanket.
Will it get better??? I suppose it will. But I suspect that Devin is getting a little impatient. He has waited almost 2 long years to have a playmate.
I have to say though that Logan is blessed with the best big brother he could get. Devin plays with him the best he knows how. They do everything together even if Logan really isn't playing WITH Devin. Logan is more like playing BESIDE Devin. Devin knows what Logan wants to do and literally picks Logan up and carries him to what they are going to do next. I can see in Logan's eyes that he is on top of the world when his big brother is helping him along. Logan looks up to Devin already and Devin is most definitely Logan's favorite person in the world!
