They love him, they really love him

I was getting the boys ready for the day. Brayden was in his room with his feeding pump, he was set for an hour. Brayden’s first feed in the morning is sometimes ready before he is. I place him in his little chair, turn on the feeding pump, soothing music and close the door to his room. Many times he will go back to sleep. I was contemplating Carter and Luke’s clothes selection for the day when I saw Brayden’s bedroom door open. I was ready to punish one of the boys for bothering Brayden. I walked in to the room and found Carter sitting beside Brayden. Carter pulled over a stool and put the fish light (the only thing we have seen Brayden glance/try to look at) next to his little brother. Then placed a kick toy in front of his feet and a rattle toy by his hand. Carter brought in one of his workbooks because thought Brayden might want to learn phonics with him. The two of them sat in the room for an hour, just hanging out.

Later that evening, Carter asked if he and Brayden could watch a movie together. Carter asked if Brayden could sit in his lap instead of in his chair.

They love him, they really love him.

Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions… 1 John 3:18

That is absolutely precious. What sweet boys they are to love on their little baby brother in such an unexpected way.
