Brotherly love

When the boys woke up Tuesday morning (June 4, 2013) they must have been surprised (and excited) to see that Grandma Vicki was in the home (We had already given the boys a heads up that we may leave in the middle of the night so that they wouldn't be confused or worried when they woke up).  Grandma told them the good news that they had a new baby brother!  Having eaten some breakfast and getting ready they came over to greet their little brother.

Having spent a tiring morning in the hospital and being exhausted it was refreshing to have the boys and Grandma come by as our first visitors.  It was a joy to watch the excitement on the boys faces to see this new addition.  Parker was anxious to hold him and made the comment "I'm never going to let him go".  Brock on the other hand seemed a little hesitant and confused as to what was happening but seeing that Parker was excited made him want to do what Parker was doing.

Having Kolby in the home for the first few days has been exciting for the boys.  They are constantly asking, "Can I hold Kolby" and "Where is Kolby".  Parker loves telling his friends that he has a new little brother and what his name is.  Brock also loves to hold him but also shows his love by sitting in his chair and seeking some attention of his own.

Witnessing this truly is an example of "brotherly love".
