I just want someone to look at me the way Isaiah looks at Baby Paul.
From what I hear, the tables will soon turn and Paul will look up to his big brother and idolize his every move. But for now Isaiah can't get enough of his tiny friend. All day, he wants to stare at him, touch him, and look out for him.
Just as I was typing this he said, "Baby Paul hungy," (not a typo.) Then he climbed up in my lap and tried to type saying, "Helps you." This kid!
|Zy wanted to join Paul in his "house" before even getting out of his pajamas or having his breakfast blueberry face wiped off.|
|I can't wait till they can play in the bath together, that'll be a game changer!|
|Paul can't even nurse in peace without his brother nearly smothering him.|
|Isaiah's 2-year check-up and Paul's 1-week weight check.|
My prayer for these two is that in both joy and adversity they will be lifelong friends that can turn to each other for anything. Lord, may their differences complement each other as their loyalty grows deep and strong. May they learn from one another lessons we as parents can't teach them, and might they remind each other of the lessons we have already taught them. Jesus, help them to serve and love each other like You do.
|My lap and heart are full!|
|Daddy's arms are full too!|
I predict that in the not too distant future, Isaiah will be hollering, "Mommy, Paul's touching me!" So for now, I'll cherish these moments where Isaiah doesn't want to leave his side, and Paul can't get away, or complain about it.
"A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need." - Proverbs 17:17
