Big Brother's Bedtime Stories

Since bringing Alyse home, Calder keeps asking when "Baby Sweetie" is going to open her eyes, and saying things like "Is it Baby Sweetie's naptime again?"  

So, after the older two were in bed last night, Dave and I were just hanging out in our bedroom watching the Oscars.  Alyse had just eaten and was very alert.  Calder walked into our bedroom to tell us he had to use the potty, but he quickly got distracted when he realized Alyse was awake.  He was so excited to see her eyes open, so Dave invited him to come and sit next to her.  Here's what followed:

Dave: Do you want to tell her anything?
Calder:  Yes!
Dave:  Go ahead...
Calder:  Oh, I don't think she'll be too interested.
Dave:  Why don't you try and see?

At this point Calder entered into a 5 minute dialogue about dinosaurs (his latest obsession)!  It was so cute to listen to him talk to her and teach her about dinosaurs.  He then ran to his bedroom to get his favorite dinosaur books and proceeded to show her each page and tell her all about each of the dinosaurs.  She had her eyes open and looking at him the whole time!  It was such a sweet, sweet moment.
