Parents everywhere know that feeling: when you hear your kid crying and you know it's going to be a long day. Esther is the mother of 2 year old Ellia and 5 month old Tessa. When Ellia wakes up a little bit grumpy and upset, her mom is a bit cautious but when Ellia makes her way into the living room and finds her mom sitting with the baby and immediately calms down. Her tears quickly stop as she gives her tiny little sister a hug.
Her mom asks her "did you wake up grumpy" which gets a nod but Ellia is clearly distracted by her sister. The baby cheers up her sister just by existing and the grumpy toddlers tears stop and she starts to smile.
Aww, I love her so much" Ellia while she is hugging her sister
Esther is obviously happy that her daughter has embraced being a big sister so well.
"She always wants to be right next to her (or on top of her), holding her hand or rubbing her head. We're always having to tell her 'give your baby sister some SPACE!'"
