Sweet and Not So

Over the last weeks I've really been struck with E's sweetness and true desire to care for others. If I'm crying, she comforts me. If I hurt myself, again, she comforts me with genuine concern. It's amazing to watch her develop into a real little person, with real feelings that she can express in a tangible way.

Yesterday we were at lunch and I said my back was hurting. Immediately she said "Oh mommy it's okay." And started rubbing and scratching my back. It was so precious!

On to the not so- on the way home from lunch we were talking about her new sibling. She often insists it's a sister. Trying to help her with potential disappointment, I told her, it really might be a brother. She got really upset, almost to tears, saying "It's NOT a brother. I don't want a brother." Uh-oh. If it is a little brother at least she has 5 months to get used to the idea.

too funny about the brother! I can't wait to hear what you're having!!! And I, too, have been struck lately by how much Sarah has been coming into her own as a little girl. It truly is amazing watching them grow!
