Gratitude and Appreciation

my journey into being thankful for what i have

Brotherly Love

on July 8, 2014

Yesterday, we were pretty excited that our little guy started taking steps all on his own.  Two big steps before he wobbled and sat down!  That’s definite progress (he was standing on his own before, but hadn’t tried to walk yet), and we’re so proud of him!  But much as I’m excited about those steps, I’m even more excited that his first two steps were NOT to get to his mommy or daddy – he took those two steps (with a huge smile on his face!), to get to his big brother.  =-)  I am so very grateful that my guys care about each other as much as they do.  Their smiles are always the biggest for each other, the oldest one regularly wants to help out with his little brother, and the little one looks all over for his brother anytime he’s not right next to him.  They giggle together all the time, and have so much fun!  But I think it said a lot yesterday that when he finally got up the gumption to take those steps, he only had eyes for his big brother.  That made my mommy’s heart happy.  =-)
