Every morning she comes into my room and smothers her brother with kisses.
She asks to hold him when he’s awake.
And always assists with his diaper changes.
When I break out my camera she wants to be in every photo with her brother. And gets her feelings hurt when I start taking them without her.
As I watch a TV show while her brother naps, she runs to his room when she hears a baby crying, thinking it’s him. She dashes and yells “It’s ok baby! Big sister’s coming!” It’s the same thing when he really is crying.
When I put him down for a nap she sneaks in his room to make sure his little Cloud b giraffe sound machine is on. If it’s not, she reaches in to grab it and turn it on for him. Always choosing the jungle music noise (even if I set it to a different one).
She calls him “buddy,” I’d never heard her say that before.
When mommy needs a potty break, she’ll keep an eye on him while he sits in his bouncy seat.
At bath time, she eagerly awaits helping him bathe. And urges me to feed him when he gets fussy before bed.
I had no idea she’d grow as attached as quickly as the rest of us. But I have a feeling they’re forming a lifelong sibling bond already.
