Brotherly & Sisterly Love

Thank goodness for video cameras! Jacob thought to capture Jack & Cora's first meeting and we captured a big dose of brotherly love and 2 year old preciousness for posterity.  She cried, he sang, and she stopped!!!  Be still my heart.

10 months later, Cora repays with some sisterly love. Her first "for sure" word?  "Jack-Jack"!  She says ma-ma-ma and da-da-da all the time but never for sure names us. I'd thought for a few days she was actually saying Jack-Jack, but this week when we arrived to pick up Jack from a playdate, as soon as she laid eyes on him, she quivered with excitement and said a clear "Dja-Dja".

In the intervening 10 months, there has been lots of mutual adoration, giggles, smiles, hugs (gentle and not-so-gentle), slobbery kisses, a few slaps and pushes, and two unfortunate scratches :(  So certainly not all perfect, but the beginnings of a real relationship with its highs and lows.

I love, love, love watching these two interact and am so happy that they will have each other throughout life!
