I don't want to forget two things about how much Jax loves his sister.
1. Yesterday when I was putting on Jax's rainboots to go outside and splash in the puddles, he was sitting in a kitchen chair and Em was at his feet on the floor. For who knows what reason, Jax pointed to his sister and burst out, "Mama, look at Em! She's beautiful!" What a pair. Happy Mama.
2. Today when I was walking up the stairs with Em in my arms to start the bedtime routine, I heard Jax playing on his little toy piano. He was banging out a melody all his own. Suddenly, it became a lullaby and he played softer and sang, "Goodnight, Em. Goodnight..." Then he'd play a few notes and sing again. "Time for bed, Em. Goodnight..." First of all, he was making up a song all his own, which to me is amazing, but it was about his sister! Then it turned into a laundry list, of course, so it kind of lessened the moment, "Goodnight Baxter (our dog)....Goodnight, Mommy...Goodnight #5...Goodnight #4..." But lessened or not, it was a special moment in their relationship, when he sang his sister off to bed. Sometimes he really is such a good boy.
