Best Friends…For the Moment

From the beginning, Blake has been an amazing big brother. I haven’t had to deal with any jealousy issues or hurt feelings of neglect (which I feared when I was pregnant with Isabella) and it has been a lot easier than I had anticipated. Blake watches out for Isabella, brings her the pacifier or toys and understands when I have to take care of her or put her to bed. I am not saying all this in efforts to brag about what a good boy I have (even though I do think he is pretty fantastic 🙂 ) but I say it because I am truly amazed at the sibling bond that has already clearly formed. My heart actually flutters with joy when I watch them make each other laugh or when I hear Blake whisper “I love you sister, I hope you have good dreams,” when he thinks no one is listening. I didn’t know a connection would be made so early on!

I think this bond hits closer to home because I have that bond with my two older brothers, especially the one that is only two years older than I am. We were close as kids and even closer as teenagers, sharing the same group of friends and now we remain close as ever. I want nothing more than for my kids to be close. I know most parents do, but getting a glimpse of their relationship now gives me great hope for the future :). I love the bond I share with my brother! We understand each other and are wonderful friends.

Now, I know all this sweet stuff is going to go sour for a while, I see it coming already. I keep telling everyone that Blake loves his sister now but wait until she starts crawling and steals his toys; I don’t think he is going to take that very well haha! I know from experience that there will be good times and bad times when it comes to siblings, but if deep down my kids have that connection (which is what I think I am seeing), they will get through those times as friends and not enemies.

As for now, I will enjoy agreeing with Blake that “Mommy, Daddy, Blake and Isabella are all, best friends!”
