When my son found out I was pregnant this time, he was very hesitant. He didn’t want to get too attached to the baby growing inside me for fear he would be hurt. I was afraid he would not bond with her after she was born, but when I look at the two of them together, it is clear that he adores his baby sister. He talks to her, snuggles her, and does goofy things just to get a grin, and she adores him. There is this smile she makes. It’s as if her whole face lights up, and sometimes when she looks at her brother, she makes that face. It is just for him.
It doesn’t matter that they have eleven years between them. I can already tell that they are going to be great pals!
