Sisterly Love

Lately Ethan has started to sleep through the night on occasion, though he still wakes up to nurse once some nights. Last night was one of those nights and I stood by the door listening to the tired cry and was hoping he'd put himself back to sleep so I wouldn't have to intervene. Listening by the door I expected to hear some tired crying and wasn't prepared to hear a tiny voice in the dark. I heard Grace say very softly and tenderly "It's ok Ethan, I love you" over and over. After listening to her try to comfort him a few times I went ahead and nursed Ethan so he wouldn't disturb Grace anymore.

But isn't that sweet?

This is the sweetest thing about siblings. It is so touching to hear about Grace's kindness. These are the lessons we hope to teach our kids. You are doing something right.

Hope you are sleeping through the night soon....
