This morning I got my first glimpse of why we decided to have our children closer together. I left the room with baby N in her bouncy seat and C watching "The Wonder Pets" on TV. He was ignoring her very existence when I left. A couple of minutes later, I walked back in to find my precious little boy perched right next to his sister's bouncy seat, finishing up a sweet kiss on her head. He had, at some point, decided he wanted to say hello to his little sister and to show her that he loved her. In return, she stared up at him with the sweetest smile on her face. She knows who her big brother is, and she loves him dearly already. Every tantrum, tear, and miserable moment the past eight weeks just melted away when I saw this unprompted display of brotherly love and sisterly adoration.
