C is about six months old now, and as far as she's concerned Connor is her very, very best friend in the whole entire world. Not only does he have great toys and all sorts of fun extremities that she can stuff in her mouth, but he also apparently has very pettable hair.
Connor has a love-hate relationship with C. On the one hand, he can sit back and let her do all the pushing of buttons and switches and keys that make his toys go while he can lean back and do all the directing. C hasn't quite figured out the concept of turns yet, and as far as Connor's concerned that's perfectly fine. Both kids get ticked at Joanna when she picks C up to give Connor a turn at the keyboard or drums or whatever it is they're playing with when he would much rather let C have a turn indefinitely.
|This picture pretty much sums up their relationship.|
Connor pretends he doesn't care for her, and acts totally indifferent when she invades his personal space and slobbers all over him, but every once in a while we'll catch him holding her hand or patting her gently on the back. So I'm pretty sure it's mostly a front and he likes her just as much as any kid likes having an annoying little sister around-- he may complain about her a lot, but he still gets excited whenever he sees her, and he's pretty tolerant of her. Certainly he likes C a lot more now that she's more interactive and doesn't spend all of her time either sleeping, eating or crying.
I think it's pretty great that he's got such a big fan to grow up with!
