Sister Love

"Sisters don't need words. They have perfected a language of smiles and frowns and winks - expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs - that can undermine any tale you're telling. The best thing about having a sister is that you always have a friend."

~Pam Brown

I love having my sister and I love having sisters! These two make my heart smile every day. Avery truly adores her sister and Adalyn can't take her eyes off her big sister. It's quite possibly the sweetest, closet thing to Heaven I have ever seen. I know I'm bias and every mom thinks this of her children.:) I just love they way they love each other. It's something so different than a parent loving their child. It's just an incredible bond I guess. Last night, Avery said she wanted to give Adalyn her bath. So I let my three year old bathe her five month old baby sister while I sat and watched with tears rolling down my cheeks. She washed her little head so gently while Adalyn smiled and cooed at her the whole time. She washed her little tummy and kissed it after she rinsed it off. Then she leaned down to Adalyn's ear and said, " I love you 'Adawyn' and I'm so glad your ear infection is gone. That made me sad when you were sick" I think my heart skipped a beat for real. There's nothing like seeing your kids love each other. Sorry, this is quite mushy and you probably think I'm a hormonal mess, probably I am, but that was a memory I never want to forget.
