Although most books tell us that at this age, babies parallel play – meaning they play next to each other and not with each other – I think Baby J and Mustang actually do play with each other!!!
I think it helps that Mustang is a few months older than Baby J – and it helps that we see them a lot! So they recognize each other.
I really think they are playing together and having fun with each other!
Mustang loves to give hugs, and if Baby J is anywhere near by, he is usually the recipient of Mustang’s hugs! Which I think is adorable.
Here Mustang is incoming! Lots of times the hug ends when the boys are on the ground (or when Cowgirl tears Mustang off of JJ) – Mustang likes to give long hugs! and he has started giving kisses, so I need to capture that on film! It really is too adorable.
I think JJ has gotten used to Mustang’s hugs – I tell Mustang to enjoy it now as at some point JJ will probably start fending off his hugs! But right now, it really is just too adorable!
