Brotherly Love

I have to say, Zach and Drew have proven to be great big brothers so far. They both sure do love Jake. Jake gets lots of unwarranted kisses and hugs from his two big brothers.

Jake was having some tummy time yesterday and Zach got down on the floor and started talking to him. Thankfully the camera was close by.

This morning I laid Jake down on Drew's floor while I helped Drew get his shirt on. Then I went into the boys' bathroom to brush their teeth, and Jake stayed in Drew's room, where he was content for about 2 or 3 minutes. I was right in the middle of brushing Drew's teeth, and Zach rinsed out his mouth and ran into Drew's room. I quickly finished up with Drew and went in to get Jake. Zach was sitting on the floor, holding Jake in his lap, gently bouncing him and going, "Shhhh shhhh shhhh." He said to me, "I know how bouncing and shhh-ing calms him down, so I thought I should do that." What a sweetheart.

Today I was thinking about how close my sisters and I are, and it really makes me wonder if Zach, Drew, and Jake will be close when they are older. I certainly hope so. It's not like it's all happiness and smiles all the time; there's plenty of bickering between Zach and Drew, but they definitely love playing together. It will be interesting to see how Jake fits into the equation as he gets old enough to play.
