Image of Joy...

This picture actually brings tears to my eyes each time I see it.  No, not because C looks cold, but because of the "story" behind his relationship with his sister.  You see, C has always been "MY boy"; When I had Princess, he had a really hard time with it.  He didn't quite know where he fit in anymore.  It broke my heart when he came to see me at the hospital, he wouldn't even look at me, or the baby, he hid under a table most of the time.  He wouldn't even acknowledge either of us until she was a week old.  It tore me apart that he wouldn't let me help him with anything, or even talk to me like he used to.  One day, I had the baby laying on the couch behind us while I sat on the floor trying to help him with his homework, I looked back & he was holding her little hand.  That was the first time he had even touched her!  There has been no looking back since then.  The bond these 2 share is incredible!  They are so close, it just melts my heart every day.  He is the BEST big brother she could ever ask for.  Don't get me wrong, the other 2 love her too, but there is something very special about these 2 "C's"!  This is my joy!  I am so glad I get to experience it each & every day!!!
