Moby & Arlo
Moby continues to request to hold the baby, sometimes at random moments in the day, and very consistently in the evening as part of saying goodnight to everyone.
14 June, at Flea Street Cafe
Seth bought Moby a baby doll. Moby immediately named the doll Arlo. He's changed the doll's diaper, or rather removed the diaper and requested help putting it back on. He has also put the doll in a cart and pushed it all the way to day care (about half a mile), much as we sometimes push him in his stroller. This is in spite of his usual dislike of walking the distance and insistence: "Pick me up!"
Rather than expressing jealousy towards Arlo, for the most part Moby instead decides he wants to do whatever Arlo is doing. He will lay down next to Arlo and insist on being covered with a blanket, for example.
In the same vein, Moby has reverted to drinking milk from a bottle. Oftentimes when I'm nursing Arlo, Moby insists he wants a bottle of milk, and we hold a family milk activity.
It's been funny to watch Moby take over Arlo's furniture.
Moby likes to bring toys to the baby. Seth helpfully pointed out that Moby has too many toys to play with them by himself, so Arlo can help him play with more of his toys at once. Moby has commented since: "The baby is helping me play with my toy."
