Big and little
Nikolai is settling pretty well into being a big brother. He likes Miriam (who he sometimes calls "Miriam" but mostly, when asked what her name is, says "'American"). For the most part he's very gentle and helpful with her. He likes rocking her swing ("gently, Niko!") and giving her his finger to suck on ("ok bud, I think she doesn't like that anymore!") and is great at bringing me things I need when I'm feeding her.
Yesterday, he wanted to hold her and it was the sweetest thing ever.
(I don't have a picture of him holding her because I was holding her with him.)
Also, I've been noticing that Miriam and Nikolai looked almost exactly alike as newborns, especially from certain angles.
Niko for sure had a bigger forehead, but other than that I think they look a lot alike! I'll probably post some more comparisons in the future :)
