It took a few months, but James Wilkie has officially fallen head over heels for his fraternal twin sisters Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, who will celebrate their first birthday next month. "It was an adjustment and we worked very hard to make him feel like his whole world hadn't changed," a proud Sarah Jessica Parker tells David Letterman of her daughters' arrival.

It took a few months, but James Wilkie has officially fallen head over heels for his fraternal twin sisters Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, who will celebrate their first birthday next month.

“It was an adjustment and we worked very hard to make him feel like his whole world hadn’t changed,” a proud Sarah Jessica Parker tells David Letterman of her daughters’ arrival.

“But then something happened in March, when [babies] turn seven or eight months they’re really interesting to other people beyond their parents, and he fell in love with them.”

Now happy to take on the role of doting big brother, the 7½-year-old won’t stand for anyone laughing at his sisters — unless, of course, it’s his own doing!

“He said, ‘I wouldn’t mind at all if I made fun of them all day long, but I would hate to hear anyone else make a joke about them,'” the Sex and the City 2 actress laughs.

“I also reminded him that should apply to his mother, it shouldn’t just be about his sisters.”

With her son gearing up to start second grade in the fall, Parker feels her and husband Matthew Broderick‘s decision to place him in an innovative school works best for her child.

“He’s in a progressive school, an experimental school — a risk on our part, I understand — and he’s going to be going into what would be called the 7s,” she says, adding that James will turn 8 only a few weeks into the school year.

“Since he is, for the moment, more on the diminutive side, some might call it a Napoleon complex, because he is so mature and such a brainiac.”
