Tonight, I sat on the bed with the windows open and the sea breeze on my skin to feed the Lady Baby. Zeph splashed about in the bath for a while until he noticed the lack of activity and scampered out of the tub to snuggle in. I whispered, 'ssshhh, I'm just feeding Pippi so she can go to sleep'. His face softened and his pace slowed. After planting a sloppy kiss on my lips he looked at his little sister and then back to me - 'I love her mum' he softly said before announcing that when she woke up in the morning he could 'play with her again' and that would make him 'so happy'.
My heart exploded right there in my chest. This boy is growing up, times like these are but a distant memory.
I see a new tenderness in him and can't help but feel proud.
