Sibling Love

I wore this outfit to church for Easter and am in love with this blazer I got from The first time it was on there it sold out before I had a chance to buy it, when it showed up again I "favorited it" in preview (previews are live at 4:00 the day before you can buy), then bought it first thing the next morning.  I have a few outfits lined up for it and excited to give them a try.

As I was dressed up in church with the family, holding Hannah while we sang songs, Grant just kept hugging us and saying how much he loved Hannah and I.  These are the sweetest words and fill my heart with such joy, and I'd like to end the sentence there but everything Grant does is "big."  He is loud, can be rough, as well as up in your face. He's a boy and he's five. So, his words and his heart are so big, but I can find myself saying, "Use a quiet voice," "Be gentle with your sister," and "Not so close to her face," about a hundred times a day. 

However, as I stood in church listening to Grant's words all I could think was, "Man, I hope he always loves Hannah the way he does now." Grant had the lime-light all to himself for more than five years, now he has to share it, and I'm so thankful that he loves Hannah and has only complained a few times about not getting attention because I need to take care of her. I do think the age gap is to their advantage, they'll always be in different stages, but just like Grant loves Hannah, she is just infatuated by him and you can tell she is crazy about him too. 

So, even though everything Grant does is "big" and it can drive me crazy, I hope he continue to love "big," and I don't want to be the one to squash that by constantly correcting him.  His heart is in the right place, and that's definitely what matters!
