Nothing has surprised me more about being a mother of two children than the love Ellis has for his baby sister.
From the minute she was born, he has done nothing but dote upon her. She is the first thing he asks for in the morning and the only required kiss at night.
The other day, we were at playgroup. Whilst I sat with a few friends with Georgia on my lap, Ellis came tearing across the room. "My baby! My Georgia!" He cried. He ran up to her and gave her a cuddle. He then tore back across the room to his friends. "Come see my Georgia! That's my baby" he said as he dragged his gaggle of 3 year olds over to us.
You know that scene in The Grinch Who Stole Christmas where the Grinch's heart went up a couple sizes?
I didn't know it was possible to love two little people so much...and then to see the two of them fall in love as well...almost too much for a mama to bear.
