Not that Henry didn't ever smile or "chat" with us. It just took a lot of work on our part. At one point, I even told my friends that I'd give anyone who could make Henry smile $10. You should have seen how hard they worked at it. And he would just stare at you. He eventually came out of his shell at about 7 or 8 months of age and I didn't have to feel like such a looney anymore (because you should have seen the things I did to get a laugh...).
But then there's Wyatt. Oh, hello happy child. What? You want to tell the world that you love being alive? Well, go right ahead!
While I wouldn't change anything about Henry as a baby (because he was perfect in his own way), it is really fun to have a baby that is so talkative and funny. And it is really fun when the talking is because of and directed to his big brother.
They couldn't be more different, but there is already a bond between them and the little guy sure can't keep his eyes off the big one.
**Enter happy and full heart**
