What better way of waking your baby sister up than turning on the bright lights. Surely if the room is all lit up she won’t be able to sleep through that! Legos must have seemed like the best close by toy solution.
By the time I started to hear little bits of noise here and there, and decided to go and check out what was going on, the two children were deep in Lego towers. The baby, in her crib of course where she cannot yet escape, had her own set of Legos to play with that her brother so nicely shared with her by shoving them through the bars.
They were perfectly content, playing and talking with one another. Time did not matter in the least to them. Even though I was tired and unprepared for 2 awake children so early in the morning there was something peaceful and so very loving seeing the 2 of them enjoy being together quietly, sneakily in their room.
The day came to an end earlier than usual with 2 very tired children, and my baby girl...she took her very first steps today, hooray! Grandpa and Daddy got to share that special moment with her. We are so proud of our little girl!
