This week is a very sad week for myself, Emily and the triplets, although I think I am the only one who really understands and knows why it’s sad. This week is the last week that I will be watching Baby Axel 😥
Aunty Gaga, Baby Axel and Uncle Mike will be moving to Calgary, Alberta later on this month 😦
As many of you know, I have been watching Axel for the last few months after my sister’s maternity leave ended and she went back to work. At times it has been a lot of work, but the amount of fun it has been to have Axel here with Emily and the triplets everyday outweighs any amount of work. If I am being honest, Axel has always been the easiest one to take care of out of the five of them!
From the day Axel was born, Emily, Jackson, Olivia and Levi have been so in love with him and sometimes a little obsessed. When Jessica would come over and Axel was still in the bucket car seat, they would run over and surround him, trying to be the first to look at him. It was the cutest thing and you could just see the love they had for him.
Over the last six months, Jackson, Olivia and Levi have spent almost everyday with Axel, Emily included, but she is at school during the day. They have watched him grow and Axel has watched them, even learning from them, including some of their tantrum styles. It has been so fun to watch Axel go from crawling around trying to keep up with everyone, to now running through the house with them. At first Axel had no idea he was part of the game and the monster Jackson and Levi were running away from. Now he gets right into the game and even runs away from the triplets.
I am so happy that Emily, Jackson, Olivia and Levi had the chance to spend so much time with Axel and vice versa. I think it has brought them closer to each other as cousins, but more so, has made them best friends. I have watched them create a bond that I hope will last all of their lives and I hope that they will always think of each other as best friends.
I don’t know what Emily and the triplets will do when Axel isn’t here everyday. The days Jessica has been off and I’m not watching Axel, they always ask where he is and when he’s coming back again. It’s going to be so sad to know that he won’t be coming over everyday and knowing when the day comes that they move, it will be a little while before they will see each other again.
I have to think that we are lucky because originally I thought I was only going to be watching Axel for 2 months, but instead we had a whole 6 months. Not only has the last 6 months been good for Emily and the triplets to bond with Axel, but it has been great for me. I feel like I have created a bond with Axel too and when he comes over to me and wants to cuddle it is such a great feeling. I think it’s safe to say Axel loves me when he will come and sit on my lap even if Jessica is in the same room =D
We all love Baby Axel so much and it won’t be the same without him here. We will miss you Baby Axel!
