Big Sister, Little Brother.

About a little over a year or so ago, my sister-in-law wrote a post to Charlotte about being a big sister to a little brother. (if you get a chance to read it, it's worth it) And until recently I really didn't see the true interaction between them.
I decided to write this post after I heard this morning..."Ian, it's time to go in the car, we are going to the store" (which was of course the pretend car) Ian responded by saying "Ok, Char-It" and then she said "no call me Mommy". And he did. He said "Ok Mom".
Getting him to participate in her pretend sequences is just beginning. "Come on Ian" or "just sit here Ian" are regular phrases I hear these days.
Now don't get me wrong, there are definitely times that Ian refuses or says "no" (which happens to be his favorite word these days). But there are many times, where playing sleepover or house just happens under Charlotte's direction.
I love it.
It is so cute. I need to get Gordon to video tape some of these things.
It's going by so fast.
Charlotte is becoming more and more of a little girl and Ian is a little boy. Charlotte has all kinds of pretend play and Ian is talking in three word phrases.
When did this happen?
My little ones are growing so fast.
I wish it would slow down, while I love watching them grow.
