A special bond

One of my favorite things about having a bunch of kids is watching how they bless each other's lives.

Audrey is the funny one and can always make the kids laugh.
When we first brought our little Luke home...he reacted to each of us as if he already knew who we were, even our personalities.  When Audrey picked him up he giggled.  All night, he giggled each time she came into his view, as if he was thinking--that's Audrey...she's going to make me laugh...

Abby is the thoughtful one.  She gets them drinks before they are thirsty, gets them out of bed before I realize they're awake, and puts them in their highchairs when she knows it's time for them to eat.  I can't tell you how many times I've pulled one of them out of the 'cage' to change a diaper...only to find she's already done it.  Without my asking.  Let me remind you--she's nine.  I'm not sure that's typical.
