Before Lincoln was born, Jared and I had more than one late-night talk about how the P's would be as big brothers. We both agreed that Porter was the biggest potential disaster but that Paxton could definitely have adjustment issues too.
We were so excited for the boys to come to the hospital and meet their new brother. They were ecstatic! They immediately wanted to hold him and snuggle him and were so sad when they had to leave without taking him with them.
We were glad but we knew that taking the baby home and settling in with a crying newborn could make them change their tune.
It didn't. They have both been so sweet with their baby brother. They have not been annoyed with his crying at all so far; in fact, if I ever don't tend to him the second he starts crying, on or both of them are at his side trying to make him feel better.
Whenever they are playing, they will always take frequent breaks to make the cars or superheroes they are playing with come visit their baby and tell me how cute he is. They love to tell strangers that this is their baby brother, he's zero. They usually follow it up with "isn't he the cutest?"
I know that things could change, but I really love their love for him.
