A Lifetime Bond

I didn't realize how important it was for Addison to have a sibling until after Brody was born and I saw how much she was in love with her little brother. I hope the two of them will always be close and love each other no matter what.

Addison's been doing great with her little brother. I haven't noticed any jealousy issues or acting out, however we are dealing with a couple of minor problems. For some reason she does like to get in her brother's face and talk really loud and touch him all over so I am constantly telling her to back off, she's also decided that she needs to sleep with us in the middle of the night. I don't know if this has anything to do with Brody or just another phase that she's going through. Its taken her over a year to get out of her bed on her own and now for the past week I find her on the side of my bed each night telling me she can't sleep in her bed. We are allowing her to sleep with us right now since we have no energy to argue back with her. She seems to go through this every couple of months so hopefully this too shall pass. Other than that she's been great, especially at helping burp Brody. I couldn't be any happier with my little family and my two beautiful children (that still sounds weird)!
