I'm Thankful Day #28
Today I'm thankful for sisterly love. I was really worried that Adelae was going to have a hard time adjusting to having a little sister. "Just wait" people said. "Just wait until she wants your attention and you have to take care of the baby." "Just wait till XYZ happens." Well, either I'm the world's best mom (and I don't think I am) or I'm lucky enough to have a very well adjusted child. Adelae has never been jealous of Brinna. Sure, there were times when she wanted Daddy to hold just her, or for Mommy to snuggle with just her, but they've been few and far between. Luckily, if we explain to her that Daddy or Mommy has to hold Brinna too, she says "OK!" Most often the first thing she says in the morning is "Where's Brinna? Can I see her? Is she awake? Can I touch her? I love my sister!" Brinna can't talk and tell us how much she loves her sister, but it's written all over her tiny little face. She LOVES to watch Adelae play or listen to her talk. She doesn't even seem to mind that Adelae gets a little overzealous with her hugs and kisses. I'm sure in a few years I'll be hearing a lot of "Mommy Brinna won't leave me alone." or "Mommy, Adelae won't let me play." But, I can tell these girls are going to be the best of friends.
