Brothers

River is starting to warm up to Wylder. For the most part he doesnt pay attention to him. Other times he just walks by and points and says "baby". On a rare occasion he shows him a toy or really stops to watch him.

But you can definitely tell he is confused. He is clinging to Freeland like I have never seen before. Yesterday a miracle occurred and we all got up & ready & made it out the door to church.. and on time! And then Freeland took River to the nursery.. and for the first time EVER he screamed when we dropped him off and never stopped screaming. And we had to leave. It was sad to see him so sad. We're going to go try the Y today and see how he does when I drop him off and not Freeland.

Anyway, I know its all normal. And soon enough their relationship is going to grow and Wylder especially is going to admire his big brother.

I thought I would share what the majority of pictures we have from the hospital look like .. us trying to get River to give Wylder a kiss!

He'll thank me for posting these when he is 20 years old.

  1. He's so young, it's hard for him to understand. They'll be the best of buds one day though!
