Brothers

I know that I'm stating the obvious here, but I love that my boys are brothers!! I think that it's so amazing to see them together and how they already have this bond.

Ian quickly took to the big brother role. We were kind of worried that having another baby would be really hard for him to understand ~ and I definitely think that having our attention divided has been an adjustment for him, really for all of us. But I don't think he realizes why - that it is another baby needing some of the attention he use to get.

From the day we brought Hudson home Ian watched out for him. He offered him his cell phone to make any important calls he might need to make, asked him to watch movies with him, covered his toes up when the blanket would slip down. He often reminds me when I am carrying Hudson to "be careful with that baby, mama". He also tells me to "mama, get Dusson at Amber's house" whenever I pick him up from school.

They already love to laugh together! It's awesome!! Hudson cracks up at Ian dancing or playing peekaboo with him...and Ian loves to make Hudson laugh.

It makes my heart just swell whenever Ian leans in to hug on Hudson, and Hudson will reach his sweet little hands up and hold Ian's face.

I pray for their relationship to only grow stronger and closer together! What an amazing life long friend God gave us when He gave us our siblings!!!

That is so sweet! I think about that a lot too. I'm an only child and have always wanted that connection with a brother/sister. I'm so glad my boys have that! I LOVE that picture of them together. So cute! :)

Love your new look! I'm totally with you on the brother thing. Sometimes I wonder why in the world we have done this to ourselves. Then they all three end up in a pile on the floor laughing together and I quickly remember...and look forward to the fun years to come.
