Brothers

The bond between these two is incredible. They sleep in the same room, get up at the same time, choose clothes for each other (matching, if possible!), and they make all their decisions about their day together. You'll rarely see one without the other throughout the day.

This week, Henry will have his first soccer practice--without his brother. In two weeks, Henry is starting preschool (two days a week)--without his brother. That same week Awana starts back up, and Jonah isn't old enough for that yet either.

I'm sad for Jonah! I don't think he truly realizes that he and Henry are almost two years apart in age--in his mind they are equals. So I'm sure he is going to feel left out. I know that his relationship with Bridget will eventually grow stronger as they have more time together, but right now she's too little to hold his interest. He's such a tender-hearted little boy, and I just want to protect him from everything--including hurt feelings!

That's so sad! Cole doesn't ever get it when he's too young to do stuff Ashley and Jay do . . . and he's four. I guess when you're younger than your sibling(s), life never seems fair. : (

Doesn't it just break your heart to see them have hurt feelings. I hate that they have to learn how to deal with disappointment. But, the little guy will prob. be just fine in a few weeks and he'll have fun being the "new" oldest when he get's to do stuff his little sister can't.
