Close bond

I was in the kitchen this morning, folding clothes, and I overheard Cassidy saying to Dylan, in such a sweet and innocent little voice, all the while petting his belly, "Are you my big sister, Dylan? Hmm? Are you my big sister?".

I took my camera out and filmed for just a minute. And while this is such a typical minute in our family, I can't help but well up a bit. And swell with pride. Their bond amazes me. They amaze me.

My kids.

The cutest thing ever. I love these moments at our household too. Does she get him to just belly laugh and giggle too? It seems the littlest ones can get the biggest reactions from the baby!!!
Thank you for sharing such a tender moment :)!

so sweet - I love how Dylan was playing with Cassidy's hair. She seems to be very gentle with him! Maybe Cassidy could teach Anne how to be GENTLE? Today Anne thought it would be fun to climb onto a stepstool in the bathroom and jump over Whitney (who I laid down while I was helping Anne with going to the bathroom and washing her hands) Needless to say, Anne is not the most skillful with her athletic endeavors at this point and managed to land a little bit on Whitney. She also seems to "fall" on Whitney whenever Whitney is having tummy time or laying on her back on the floor... somehow hopefully she will soon become more coordinated and gentle! :)
