Ellie has been mentioning Goodwin more lately. I’m always surprised by the things she says especially when she initiates the topic.
The night we celebrated her birthday I was helping her pray. I included, “I’m grateful for Baby Brother.” When we finished she said, “I wish Baby Brother was at our party.”
Today after taking Sophie to school, she said, “Too bad Baby Brother died.” (She has said this several times). I agreed with her and told her it makes me sad. “It make me sad too. I not hold Baby Brother.” I told her I was sad that she didn’t get to hold him. “We can have another baby if we want to…. I want another baby named Baby Brother.”
Anyway, I’m happy they talk about him. But I think I underestimate how much they actually think about him.
