These 2 have been bonding quite a bit after a spontaneous invitation from Mimi to take Sweet G to the retreat house for a few days.
It’s been so interesting to observe the dynamic involving big sis and little bro. A very different dynamic than when all 3 are together. I have been amazed at how calm, how independent and focused Miss Spicy has been. She is a different person without the
temptation to taunt competition excitement of having her Sweet little sister to bother love on. 😉
I have always said she needed a brother. And I was right. These 2 are so fun to watch. She gets to mother him and be as rough as she wants with him and he takes it and seems to eat it up, for the most part…
There has been a lot of wresting, tickling, jumping, fort building, block stacking,
dancing, and of course their bonding experience wouldn’t be complete without little bro being subject to his big sister’s dress-up…
I just love this next series of shots. The way he makes her laugh…Oh how she loves him so! Melts my heart. (On a sidenote, is it ok to be jealous of my daughter’s hair??? 😉 )
I admit, I was feeling a little guilty that I was enjoying these 2 so much and Sweet G was all by her lonesome (well, by lonesome, I mean
enjoying relishing her space and being spoiled and constantly loved on by 2 of the greatest momma’s on the planet!) Um yeah, so as soon as I got to Facetime with my princess and she was telling me in full sentences about her wonderful time, literally as the Queen of the castle, the guilt quickly disappeared and I actually began to grow a little jealous of the blessed little one 😉
Over the course of the last few days, I found myself thinking,”when did 2 kids become so easy?” Probably when I got used to three sometime in the midst of the chaos. It’s amazing how God helps us adjust and adapt to our changing surroundings. It gave me a little hope for the addition of Amelie and that someday (no expectations of when exactly that might occur) I will also adjust and figure out how to take care of 4!
Thank you, angel momma for giving my ‘middle child’ such a special treat of a trip with her Mimi! For all the attention, affection, instruction (I could tell in the 1st 15 minutes of her return that a lot of 1 on 1 tutoring learning sessions took place) and LOVE!!!!!
