|Two-month-old Brontë gets a goodnight kiss from her big brother.|
When I thought about having a child, I really wanted to have two so that they could have this kind of relationship. I have nothing against only children & don't believe there's anything wrong with having only one. I wrote more about why I wanted my kids to have siblings in another post here.
So far, my hopes have come true for Linnaeus & Brontë. Though he occasionally gets a little rowdy near her as I'm breastfeeding her on the couch, for example, he is generally quite gentle with her. When he calls her "my baby", that really gets me.
I know there will be some serious sibling rivalry to deal with at some point in the future, but for now, I'm just enjoying the present.
