Sweetness

Sometimes when you're a mom, things just happen that melt your heart. As Mallory gets older, I am seeing the relationship between Aubrey and Mallory blossom. Now I know that they will not always get along. I mean, Leah and I had knock down, drag out fights when we were younger, (I'm sure you can't imagine that) but right now Aubrey is pretty sweet to his little sister. And since I always wanted a big brother when I was younger, I think it's neat.

The other day Mallory wanted to look at "book" so we went in her room to read. Aubrey climbed up in her chair so of course Mallory wanted to get in the chair too. Aubrey scooched over so she could sit with him. Since Aubrey has heard me read many of our books over and over he pretty much has them memorized. So he sat and "read" to Mallory. Mallory would just look up at him and grin and giggle. It was so incredibly cute. I had to get my camera. Then Aubrey put a bow in Mallory's hair, and she kept it there, which she never does for me. She loves that brother. So sweet.

Brother/Sister; Brother/Brother- no matter what the combination is, there is nothing sweeter in the world than seeing your babies love on each other. Thank you for sharing this precious moment with us Sarah.

ADORABLE! Trust me, it'll be short lived! Jackson & Hailey can have some real knock-downs, but you better not pick on one of them or you're gonna get it from the other one!
