Finally, M is showing S some love again! I think it must be because S is now sitting up unaided, but M is finally showing some interest again in her baby sister. On Saturday night we had S sitting up on the floor while we ate a pretty informal dinner. She started crying and M went over and sat next to her, saying, “Don’t worry, I’m here. It’s ok.” We all just stopped eating and silently watched. It was like we were watching an animal do something – we didn’t dare move or say anything and upset the absolutely adorable exchange. S stopped crying and just smiled at her sister – so excited that she was finally getting some attention from her. She hadn’t asked to hold her in a long time and had said no every time we asked, but this weekend she finally asked to hold her. I haven’t been pushing it, but it had been something I was starting to get a little worried about, especially since they’re about to be apart a lot more with school starting for M in a little over a week. M hadn’t been interested in kissing her goodnight, but is now doing that again! This newfound interest in her sister is so cool to watch! Look how big S looks in this photo. She only weighs 9 lbs less than M.
