For the love of a sister

I had Levi in his bouncer seat in the kitchen this morning. The back door was open and I was letting him soak in the rays. He was content and just chilling. When Constance saw that the door was open she went and closed it. Since the door is normally closed I guess that was the natural thing for her to do. I went and re-opened the door however. My daughter sees this and burst into tears and tries to close the door again. I tell her that "mommy wants to leave the door open." She gets upset and is crying again. A small noise behind me catches my attention. I turn to see little Levi's lip sticking out, his eyes are watery and he is whimpering a little. The more she cries the more he keeps sticking out his lip!

To distract Constance I tell her to turn around and talk to her brother. She turns around, and lets out a little giggle. Immediately, Levi stops whimpering and keeps grinning from ear to ear at her! It was SO cute! He was upset that his sister was upset and was happy when she calmed down.


  1. Awwww! That is so sweet! That reminds me of when Keith and I were little and Mom recorded us on audio tape. Keith was crying like babies do and I would come up and say, "Don't cryyyy. Please, don't cryyy." It would upset me when he cried. I guess siblings have a connection there that when one is upset the other doesn't like it... no matter how old they are.

  2. That is so funny and cute that Levi responded so quickly to Constance's tears AND laugh! And it is so sweet that Constance responded to him as well. Isn't it just amazing that Levi is already starting to pay attention to her so closely? Wow! I am just blown away at how observant he is at six and a half weeks old.

    Love you bunches,
