These two boys amaze me. From the very beginning Tommy was smitten with his baby brother. Sure there were times he asked me to "put him away" (meaning in his baby seat) but over all he has been fabulous. Always concerned when Jack is sad or sick, always wondering "where is Jackie" when he can't find our littlest one. Many mornings we have heard Tommy climbing into Jack's crib to play with his baby brother, telling him not to cry, that everything is ok. Many mornings he comes in our room to let us know that Jack is crying and we need to get him.
The love doesn't go one way. Jack will follow Tommy as far as he can - when in a really playful mood he will try to taunt his big brother to chase him. He is always so excited to see Tommy and always ready to play with him. He already aspires to be like his big brother.
I can't believe how blessed we have been to have had these two wonderful little guys in our lives. I will never cease to be amazed how blessed they are to have each other, and how so young, they already seem to know it.
