She has loved him from day 1

This was taken at the hospital the day Gavin was born. I made her a big sister shirt that she is wearing and she couldn't wait to meet her new baby brother. This expression is why I love this picture so much and because this is the first time she held him by herself. The picture below was taken as soon as we walked in the house with him from the hospital. She couldn't wait to get her hands on him.

Now Gavin is 2 and things aren't always this precious. I am constantly policing them. Some days I wonder if they are going to continue to get worse or are they going to be more loving toward one another. I want them to be close and take care of one another as any mother does.

Today, however, I had a reassuring moment. There is hope! Sadie gets to get a prize out of the treasure box on Fridays at school, but today it was a little different. She didn't get herself something out. She got her brother something. I always ask her if she had a good day and what she got out of the treasure box and today was no different. She was so excited to tell me that she got her brother a race car out of the treasure box instead of getting herself something and that she made sure it was a fast one. I was so proud of her! So...
She has loved him from day 1
she loves him today!
