Thanks for asking about Kacie! She's fabulous and wonderful sister! She loves her little brother sooooo much. She doesn't dote on him 24/7, but she does play with him a lot, especially outside. She still likes her alone time, and we respect that and give it to her. We have been very careful to make sure Ty sees her as a sister, not a care giver. We are careful to tell her she's beautiful when we talk about how cute Ty is. She also feels better when we say, "We did this for you too," when we are caring for Tyson. It makes her feel good that Ty isn't getting "special" treatment because we treated her the same way when she was little. School started a week after we got home, so that was difficult on Ty more than Kacie. When she's gone, Ty misses her, and she misses him. They have a great bond. It's truly awesome to watch.
