Sibling Love {Simple Moments, Bigger Picture}

It’s one thing to witness the pure baby love from your older children when you bring home a new baby. I mean who doesn’t love a new cuddly little baby.

It’s another thing to watch them continue to love on her when she is an almost walking, almost toddler who screeches and takes up a lot of mom and dads attention and patience.

Some of the sweetness to love this week:

Watching a little sister become a big sister through leading and guiding. We may have melted when she took her baby sister's hand and helped her walk across the room.

Mornings have been a bit rough around here do to lack of sleep, in fact just go read Heather because that’s many of my mornings (and it's something every mother/parent should read and take to heart). Yesterday however we slept 7 hours!!!! So the morning was going a bit smoother.

It started with big kid snuggles in my bed. Although nothing could convince them to call off school and stay there all day.

Than came morning cuddles and sweet calm nursing with a snugly, well rested baby. We had just finished and she was sitting in my lap cooing and just being cute when her door squeaks. We both turn to see some little hands reaching through the door. She immediately starts bouncing on her bottom, squealing and giggling with delight.

The door flies open and her big brother and sister fall into the room in a bundle of giggles and smiles. She completely explodes with happiness. Giggles! Squeals! Bouncing! They all collapse into a big giggling group hug and my heart simply explodes.

It’s one thing for us to show love and teach love to our children but to see that love and joy flowing from them on their own between each other? It’s magical and makes me wonder how you ever decide to stop having more children?

Oh, I love this today. I think you described it perfectly. I love it when they love each other. You are right, it is such an amazing feeling.

I love you and your little family. You guys are precious to me. So glad you have captured these moments and have them for the littles to read when they are grown.

For me...just sweet memories. So long ago but I remember that joy like it was yesterday. And the great thing is that though my little kid days are gone, the big kid days bring their own kind of joy.

So, so cute! I can just picture your little one bouncing up and down with excitement! That decision when to stop having babies was a very difficult one for me. I just love them so!
