Siblings

Oh my goodness. My heart is going to explode from happiness.

I never had siblings growing up, so I never really had that interaction that my kids do. Yesterday, I was torn between being angry and LMAO because these kids were insane. It was a constant “GRIFFIN! Stop pulling your sisters hair!” “Lorelai, DON’T push your brother!” but at the same time I could see that they were just roughhousing and having a great time. I was listening to myself, sounding so much like… well, a mother. Watching them interact was just so much fun.

They run around playing tag (well, Lorelai runs around, Griffin crawls at top speed). Lorelai yells “Griffin, come and get me!” and Griffin responds with a squeal and a little jump before he charges. They roll all over each other and I’ll often find one of them being pinned down by the other one screaming (they’re almost the same size).

Just now Lorelai was eating breakfast in her high chair. She turned to me and said “Momma, all done! Play with brother now!” It was so sweet, my heart just ached. Now she’s in the living room counting to 10 while Griffin “hides” (crawls behind the couch). I just love these kids more and more every day, more than I ever thought I could because I not only love them individually, but I LOVE them as siblings.
