The other day I was watching Sloane and Logan play together and marveling how wonderful their interactions were, when I suddenly remembered that we had recorded their first meeting the day Logan was born. I went back to find it and made this video so that the clips don't get lost in the archives.
I didn't want Sloane to feel pushed out or jealous when she came in and saw us with the baby, so I made sure to have my arms available to greet and hold Sloane when she first came in and tell her how much I had missed her. (It's funny - one of the first things she wanted to do was share the grapes that her and my MIL had packed in her little bag). It was amazing to behold my big girl after having just given birth to another tiny one.
It makes me weepy watching this- remembering how much love I felt for both of them, how lucky I felt and how proud I was of Sloane for being so loving and gentle to her new baby sister.
