A few days ago, James Robert asked me if he could hold Tommy all by himself. It is the first time he has asked to hold his brother and only the second time doing so (the first time was at the hospital and he hasn't shown interest since).
I quickly picked up my camera to capture this moment. The pride and joy the James Robert beamed was unforgettable!
Tommy has spent a lot of time crying, so having a few moments for the two of them to bond while he was not crying really made James Robert happy. Upon his suggestion, we put down the play mat for them to lay together and it was the first time they were really engaging with each other. Tommy was easily entertained by James Robert showing him all of his cars and trucks and even gave him a few big smiles!
Their brotherly love made me as happy as it made them!
