I wasn't sure how I felt about the age gap between you & your sister. I always said if I hadn't given you a sibling by the time you turned 5, you would forever remain an only child.
God laughed at my 'plan' & 3 months ago you become a big brother.
I couldn't be more proud of you.
Yes, sometimes I am amazed by the crazy level of silliness and immaturity you display ... but, you are an 8 year old boy, so I suppose those things are to be expected. :)
But, mostly I sit back and watch you in complete awe.
You are kind and gentle with your little sister. You are patient and helpful. It makes my heart happy to watch you tickle her toes & kiss her chubby little cheeks. I am grateful that when I am struggling to find a balance between being a mom and keeping the house running, you step in and offer to rock your sister. You feed her a bottle like a pro and you seem to know just how to make her smile.
I was wrong about the age gap. It's perfect. You are an amazing helper and I love you for that.
Thank you for being charming, handsome, wonderful you.
I love you.
