The love of a big brother...



I am so very grateful for the love that the big boys in the house show their little siblings...

Do they ever get irritated with them...  YES!  Do they ever treat them not as sweetly as they should ??  100%  ...

But all in all, they are such great big brothers... They are so helpful to me... They love to spend time with the little ones...  My heart just melts when the older 2 boys scoop up the little ones and cuddle them up:)  You would be shocked how often they are kissing the littlest ones up!  (Not in a weird way... but a precious way!:)  They love them so much!

This week Louis put together a make shift tent in the back yard... The little ones loved having the chance to hang out in there looking at books later one evening.  Fun stuff! Those are the moments that bless my heart... The big brother investing and loving on the little ones... There are many days that I could not do half of what I do with out their help.  And Louis in particular still has such a tender heart... Just last night he headed out to the grocery store with me at midnight... He didn't want me to go alone:)

I know that life is fragile... I know that I likely only have a few more years with him at home with me... He is a gift... I am so very thankful that God opened my womb and blessed Greg and I with him.  How long and hard we tried for him... He was worth the wait!  I treasure him and the special times he shares with his siblings and that we share together!
