Washing His Sister's Feet

I've recently started sticking Ruth in the bathtub with Britt, now that she is big enough to balance well, even with Britt as rowdy as he is. The relationship the two of them seem to have, warms my heart. Britt is forever trying to take care of Ruth. He brings her endless amounts of toys, and pets her hair, and is forever trying to hold her. Now that she is in the bathtub with him, he feels it's his duty to help with her bath. He "scrubbies" her hair, but far more gently than he washes his own, and especially loves to wash her feet. He talks and talks to her and laughs and shares his rubber duckies, and she grins and kicks and babbles back. I hope they are able to retain the joy they seem to have together for a long time, and not become siblings who can't stand to be in the other's presence.

I can't believe how big he is now... well, how big either of them is, for that matter. That is so sweet. I love that he's able to serve his sister just as we try to do for our brothers and sisters in the church. Sending all of you a big hug from IL!

that is the sweetest thing. And if it comforts you, Abbey and Brady are still very close even tho they're boy/girl siblings.
