Every Friday morning we start speech therapy at MJC at 9am. At 9:30am we start storytime, playtime, snack time, etc. We head home about 11:30am. Today more than ever I'm just in awe at the bond Danica has formed with little Brin-Brin (as she calls her) In the past 24 hrs I've witnessed Danica helping Brinley put her ears back on when they fall off, grabbing her socks or a blanket when it's cold, sharing her juice, planting a SUPER BIG hug and kiss just because-----but today when leaving playgroup was by far the most touching.
As we opened the car door to hop in the car, Danica (who is destined to be a speech therapist, nurse or teacher) stated
Brinley, open the door, OPEN. OPEN. SAY OPEN BRINLEY.Brinley looked at her and gave a long "OOOOOOOO", best she can do, and I'll never forget how Danica reacted. She was so proud of her little sister!!!! D turned to her with tears swelling and said
Good job baby Brin Brin, good talking, your the best baby sister ever. Take your time. MOM, did you hear that? Brinley talked for me......
So touching as a parent to see all your hard work pay off. It's not just Rod and I that have to adapt, it's Danica too. She's been so eager to learn sign language and communicate with her sister. Both of our girls are so incredibly special for different reasons.
We are family,
I got all my sisters with me.

Get up ev'rybody and sing
