Just Cause - Well Played Fate....

One thing I wish I could take back when I found out Pip had Down syndrome, was all the tears I cried, sobbed, wept yep wept is the right word, over the relationship I thought Noal would have with his sister...I was so very sad thinking he had been "cheated" of an amazing friendship like I had with my brother...

Oh Fate you funny, thing you....Daily you show me how very much I have to learn...

Most mornings when Pip wakes up from her nap, Noal goes running into her room, climbs up into her crib and has a little play...It makes for some of my absolute favourite moments, because I just sit back and watch them and reflect on how different I feel about their relationship now. 

Today, however, when Noal heard her crying he said, "Oh no momma" and went storming up the stairs and into her room with such purpose...Once he maneuvered his stumpy little legs over her crib rails he cuddled on in, patted her back and kept saying, "It's okay sweetheart, you okay, I got ya sweetheart". 

Fate well played...Very well played...

  1. Oh gosh they are soo adorable ! Love big brother instincts to help out little Pip :)

  2. What heart-warming pics! They got me all teary-eyed thinking about my own two little ones and their unconditional love for each other -)

  3. Cutest!! My two little ones do the same thing… my son crawls into my daughters crib and they giggle and laugh together. It's so amazing watching their relationship form:)
