I worried a lot about these two getting along. Yes, I knew they would fight. I knew there would be moments when they would rather be related to anyone else in the world. But, I also know how great it could be. How having someone - that no matter what - is on your side. Someone that is in your corner and will stay up until 10:00 pm gabbing with you about nothing specific, just becaue you needed them to.
They did that tonight.
Michael and I listened to them chatter back and forth for over an hour over the baby monitor. Silly banter and even sillier jokes. Giggles and squeals. A big sister and little brother trying to keep each other awake and entertained.
It was magic.
