There is a special bond between these two.

Yesterday Sparky was having a melt down (at 18 months he’s entering the terrible twos early, just like his big sis did.  The saving grace, is that he’ll be OUT of them sooner.  At least that is the hope) during breakfast.

Nothing would pacify him (not even a pacifier!).  But Kate could.

She settled him down and got him to be quite and actually helped him to finish his breakfast.

Watching that happen, Nicki and I looked at each other and said that is why we wanted to have two children.  We’re so incredibly blessed.
