There is no other bond like that of siblings and when it comes to sisters the bond shared between them can either be that of best friends or rivals. Family life can be messy, but it can also be fun. Ask any couple with kids and they’ll surely tell you. Sisters may get under your skin but they can also be your greatest supporter.

Having a sibling is fun.

Kids learn to socialize and get along at an early age and if mom and dad do their jobs right, those kids will learn to share, respect, and care for one another. Great characteristics to have as adults!

In this video, 9-year-old Allie is singing to her sleeping baby sister Ashlyn.

Ashlyn is seven weeks old here and looks every bit the part of a healthy baby. Rosy cheeks, fat chin, onesie and all, she sleeps the day away in the arms of her big sister who spends the time serenading this little one.

The sweetest smile

The best part is when Ashlyn breaks in to a pretty smile at the sound of Allie’s voice. She loves her big sister’s singing so much that it probably gave her the sweetest dreams ever!

Allie smiles herself. She tries to control her emotions but eventually stops singing as she breaks into a few tears.

Mom asks,

“Why are you crying?”

Allie says with a few sniffles,

“Oh my God… It’s because she smiled at me when I was singing.”

A moment to remember

She goes back to singing for Ashlyn.

After a few moments, her baby sister opens her eyes for a few seconds before going back to sleep. Isn’t she adorable? Allie chuckles at the sight while still trying to compose herself.

She’s one big sister who will always have her sibling’s back that’s for sure. Ashlyn will have someone to learn all the girly stuff from. Sisters are bff’s for life. They’ll share personal stories, clothes, shoes, and even get into fights for each other.

Singing to babies have their benefits.

Go anywhere, any place in the world and you will see people singing to babies. These little ones begin processing sound as early as 25 weeks even identifying rhythmic patterns as you go along. Music is amazing.

There’s a proper way of doing it too. Notice how we instinctively raise the pitch of our voices and speak at a slower pace when addressing infants? That goes for singing too. Why do you think nursery rhymes sound that way?

Singing to babies help strengthen the bond between parents and child, or in this case, Allie and Ashlyn’s bond. It helps with a baby’s awareness and attention as evidenced by how this precious baby girl responded to her sister’s singing.

And even though they’re still babies, the words you sing help them understand language and communication. Listening skills are developed and the familiarity of those voices instills a sense of security for the little one.

Keep singing, Allie!

Even as adults, we love it when someone special sings to us. It doesn’t matter if they’re the next big star or that they cannot carry a tune, it’s the thought that they love you so much that they would sing to you. Hence the smile and the tears for Allie and Ashlyn.
