I woke this morning at 7am to the sounds of my little girl cooing and yelling playfully. I checked the monitor and it was silent. It took me a couple minutes to get my bearings and then I realized it was coming from the living room.
I stumbled out to find Brennan and Anneliese sitting on the couch watching Sponge Bob. A little befuddled I asked Brennan when she woke up etc. He said he heard her talking at 6:23 am (he likes to be precise) and decided to get her up and bring her down.
The two of them were bonding. It amazes me that she didn't want to nurse for the first 37 minutes she was awake. Typically a baby wants to eat first thing. My heart is warmed by my big boy who just decided to take care of his little sis without hesitation. It didn't even occur to him to leave her or to bring her to me since she was fine.
I appreciated the extra snooze time and when she saw me she decided she was hungry. I picked her up and headed to my room to feed her when Brennan said,"Can I have her back when you're done?"
