Fourteen months apart – The bond between sisters…

I can’t believe it’s been 2 months already that the baby was born. She’s gotten so big, she’s lifting her head and getting so strong. When she’s laying down, she’s already trying to roll over. She’s such an overachiever 🙂 It took a while for my first to roll over…

Fourteen Months Apart, the bond between sisters

It’s amazing the bond between them already. I had no idea what to expect when I found out we were expecting again so soon after my first daughter was born. I didn’t know if she would be jealous, if she would even care about the baby.

But she loves her sister, I can see it and feel it.

It’s so amazing to watch.

She hugs her whenever she has the chance. When the baby starts crying, she will go to her, talk to her and the baby gets quiet and listens. When I am holding baby in my arms, she rubs her head softly, and she even tries patting her on the back to burp her. Haha, she has to be mimicking me.

The sweetest thing I have seen is at random times she will go over to her baby sister, take her blanket and rub it back and forth over her mouth as if she’s wiping it. She must have seen me do it hundreds of times already.

I am shocked to see the little girl she has blossomed into.

My favorite thing about this age is that she is happy all the time. Everything makes her smile and laugh. It melts my heart to see her reach up for me to carry her, or how she runs to me and tries to wedge between my legs because one of the dogs is chasing her, a safe place that she knows mommy will never let anything happen to her.

Fourteen months apart…

It’s hard for sure…

But it’s the only thing I know. And I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.

    awww the babies are beautiful! I sometimes wish I had my kids closer in age. They are close but I think they might have been closer. The bond between siblings are really strong and one that won’t be broken easy.

    My oldest boys are 16 months apart in age. They have been best friends their entire lives. Although the sibling rivalry has just begun at age 8 and 9. But I cherished those younger years when they were as thick as thieves. I know this fighting is just a stage they go through, but I can’t wait until it goes away and they are super close again.

    What pretty little girls. I have an older son and then our two boys are 22 months apart. they have always been close and got along wonderfully.
    I think alot of that has to do with how you treat them and how they are raised to view one another.
    My boys are all grown and on their own. They each talk about missing the other and keep in touch. It is heart warming.

    It’s so important to maintain the bond between siblings. Unfortunately, my siblings and I are not close but I’m raising my boys to be close with each other.
