i can't tell you how thankful i am that my kids can finally play together and that they get along so well. they really love each other and really play well together. i know this isn't always the case between siblings regardless of age difference and gender. so i don't take their bond for granted!
lula definitely fills the role of "little mother" very well. her preschool teacher even commented that she was the little mother at school! she loves to take care of everybody, and that includes her baby brother. baby brother adores lula. so it all works out nicely!
anyway, it sure has made my life a lot easier that they enjoy playing together. i have begun to see the light at the end of the "toddler tunnel" and it's looking pretty bright! they've been playing outside a lot now that the weather has turned towards spring, and we've been enjoying trips to the park as well. i absolutely love this time of year when everything is sprouting and blooming. it's so peaceful and beautiful and sweet.
