The Magic of Older Cousins

Becca’s two cousins, Jo Jo (2) and Caroline (5), came for a visit last week. In the short time that they were here, they helped Becca make huge strides in the crawling, standing and cruising department. It was amazing to see the impact they had on her life. I also loved seeing how much she enjoyed being with them.

When Becca is here on her own, she tends to be surrounded by grown-ups. Grown-ups who are more than happy to bring a toy to her or pick up something she dropped or take her where she wants to go. As a result, she hadn’t crawled much and she didn’t seem very interested in doing so.

As soon as Caroline and Jo Jo walked in the door, Becca was surrounded by a whirlwind of activity. She either needed to figure out how to keep up or she was going to be left behind. Well, it turns out she doesn’t like being left behind.
