In Which I Talk About Ella

Ella meeting Miles

Originally uploaded by Dallas Ann

A lot of things strike me in this video. Her hair, her little voice, her laughter. The almost shocking change in her little self when compared to who she is today.

But what stands out the most is her love and desire to take care of her baby brother. To this day, if her love could kill, he would be dead daily. She coos after him, asks if he’s okay when he’s crying, and tells anyone who listens how much she loves her “very small brother”.

Of course, they have their moments. Daily moments, in fact. Screaming, yelps of pain, shouts of anger. But in the end, I hear a little voice say, “Oh Miles. I’m sorry. Here’s a kiss”.
