Jack has Fiona’s Back

Last night in the nursery, after Jack and Fiona had their baths, Jack did the most amazing thing. It was time to put pajamas on, I wanted to put Fiona’s on first because she had begun to tug at her diapers. She wasn’t wearing her hearing aids. “Fiona, bring me your pajamas” I said. She looked at me and started walking towards the pajamas but didn’t understand what I wanted. I pointed and said it again but it was clear she didn’t understand. Then, Jack picked up Fiona’s pajama’s and handed them to her so she could bring them to me. I couldn’t believe it, and I knew at that moment, more than at any other moment Jack would be there for his sister forever.
