Big bro...little sis

These are my two bookends
They are both beginning their lives but in different ways

Both learning independancy and freedom in new ways
There is a bond with them

Big brother walks in the room he reaches for little sister with a smile on his face.
Little sister reaches for big brother with a HUGE grin on her face.

It is a bitter-sweet time in motherhood
Wanting to hold on to both as tight as I can
Also knowing that in letting go,
 they can truly find themselves and who they are going to be in Christ.

I have the best of both worlds!
An adult "child" AND a baby "child" in my home

I wonder what the future holds for them?

It's amazing the love that the toughest of young men have for babies, especially little girls I suspect! We have a male friend, unmarried, about our age, and he has become like an uncle to our daughter, he will sit and play with her for ages, and they're not even related! It's the most beautiful thing. You can tell they'd made dedicated fathers.
