Sibling time

Andrew and Sylvia can be so sweet together.  I just love those kiddos so much!  Have I mentioned recently how cute they are together?  Oh, they are:)

Andrew is such a kind and loving big brother.08-29-11_FirstDayofSchool_003

Many days when Andrew is walking home from school, Sylvia will run down the street toward him, her arms spread wide.  And Andrew then runs toward her, his arms spread wide.  They meet half-way down the block in a big sibling embrace.  Reminds me of the scene from the Muppet Movie where Kermit and Miss Piggy are running toward each other through a flower-strewn meadow.  Makes my heart spark and pulse with happiness.

08-29-11_FirstDayofSchool_017In and amidst the sibling squabbles, there’s so much love and fun between these two.  Sometimes when they’re watching a movie and Andrew is feeling a bit worried, Sylvia bravely states, “Don’t worry, Andrew, I’ll protect you.”  And of course, he does the same for her.

Sometimes the two of them get laughing about something (often a bare bootie or a “sweet potato” as we oft refer to them), and they roll on the floor together, cackling and laughing so hard they can’t breathe.

They play games where Andrew is the villain and Sylvia is the girl baby or Andrew is the pirate and Sylvia is the pirate baby.  Or Andrew is a caped superhero and Sylvia is a tiny “born baby.”  See a theme? gaa gaa

Sylv enjoys having time at home by herself.  Franky, I think she relishes the solo time.  However, nothing beats having a cool brother to come home at the end of the day to play with her.

I’m so glad these two have each other.  Love you, kiddos!
