This afternoon as Oliver sat on the sofa in his favourite spot watching Winnie The Pooh, Lucy decided to clamber up next to him and watch too. Quite unprompted she then leaned over and held his hand.

She is lovely to the little guy like that. OK, she occasionally whacks him to get what she wants, but this seems to be improving and is outweighed by how much she dotes on him. He got up this morning and came into our bed where Lucy and Hayley where snuggled up. Lucy immediately leaned over to Oliver and gave him a kiss, complete with her trademark "mmmmmwah!" sound. And this evening as Oliver charged around playing a game of his own invention, she charged around after him, not sure what she was doing but just wanting to join in with him.

Finally when the time comes each evening for them to go off to bed in their separate rooms, she always has a kiss for him, often waving and saying "Bye bye" as she goes.

There is nothing more heartwarming than seeing the two of them happy together. Long may it continue.

Awww... that's soooo cute of Lucy to adore her big brother so much. Oliver is such a good big brother to be so sweet to her, even through her mood swings. No wonder why all the little girls in his play group adore him so much =) You and Haley seem like you are doing a great job raising your children.

Alice, You are too kind. Raising kids is the best but hardest challenge. I just hope I make up for my mistakes by making sure they always know how much I love them.
