When I was pregnant with Evie, I wondered how I could ever love a person as much as I loved Liam. I worried how he would react to a new baby and having to share that love.
What I didn’t take into account was the love they would have for each other. Yes, as most mothers of more than one child will tell you, your heart multiplies with the children you have. It is possible to love one as much as the other, and your love just grows.
But from day one, Liam has been nothing but adoring of his baby sister. And now that she is old enough to walk with him, play with him, and ultimately torture him, their love for one another just astounds me. I pray they always have this kind of love and care for each other as they grow, because some day they will only have each other.
