This is Miles. We have called him Claire's boyfriend since before he was born (he's about eight months younger). Claire has never really done a whole lot with bottles, but I now know she's on her way to helping me out with the new baby with all her attempts at feeding Miles. Miles handles it pretty well the first few times. But Claire likes to pull it away and give it back so many times that the poor kid has had enough soon after she starts.
Claire yells "Miles!" every time anyone knocks at the door, hoping it's him. She cried when he left her in the store the other day. She has a fondness for him that is so endearing. He is crawling right now and she has recently discovered that riding Daddy as a horse is fun stuff. So, it was an easy transition to riding Miles. The first few times I saw it, I thought she was being mean. You know, trying to sit on him, like you always hear kids do to their little siblings when they first come around. I was glad I figured it out because it made me nervous for this new little one!
Anyway, she loves this kid. She still steals his toys (and he hers), but they get along pretty well.
