Sisterly Love!

So, a couple days ago I was trying to make dinner but Lily was exceptionally fussy and wouldn't stop crying long enough for me to get it started! I tried to feed her, hold and snuggle her, passify her, etc. but the second I put her down she would start screaming again. Eventually I had to put her on the couch to scream it out so I could get dinner done before Kevin got home.

About 3 minutes into letting her scream, she suddenly stopped! The first thought that went through my head was that Brooklyn had had enough and put Lily out of her misery! I was freaked out and ran into the living room to check on them both. Well... I was right about one thing. Brooklyn HAD had enough, but instead of smothering her little sister, I found her doing this:



After all I had done to calm her down, all Lily needed was a little love from her big sister. I can't believe that Brooklyn thought of singing "I am a Child of God" to Lily all by herself and I love how sweetly she kisses Lily's hands in between sentences. I am truly blessed to have such sweet and beautiful daughters!

Naomi, that was so unbelievably precious, I'm just overwhelmed watching it! What a special and sweet bond sisters have. To see your girls loving each other so tenderly at such a young age is one of the greatest most fulfilling moments a mother can experience. Brooklyn is so sweet, and Lily is just an angel. Thanks for sharing that, I'm not gonna lie, I got a little teary eyed!

You and Kevin are great parents. Brooklyn learned that from somewhere. I can't wait to see you all again. Love, Dad
