One of the best things about the stage of life we’re in right now as parents is watching out two boys play and interact with each other. In fact, few things make my heart smile more. Click play on the video below to see a quick video of what I get to see day in, day out.
Noah’s five years old now, Jaxten is almost two, and these two boys really are becoming best friends. Noah is really enjoying having a little brother, and Jaxten is loving have a big one. One fun thing about their relationship is watching them teach each other new things. For instance in the video you can see Noah jumping off his hat, and Jaxten then wanting to do the same. I love that.
I love seeing the bond that is already forming between these two little guys. These guys love each other, and I love that.
I love that they can also just hang out and watch moves as well…
As I see them grow up in age, my hope is that these two will continue to grow up in their relationship with each other as well, and as I watch them today, I’m sure it will. It will be fun to watch them grow up together. To play together. To be there for one another. To love one another. It’s fun watching them be brothers.
I’m consider myself incredibly blessed to be a daddy to these two brother.
Don’t get me wrong. Not every moment of the day is hugs, and laughs, and smiles. In fact, shortly after I recorded the video in today’s post, Jaxten had to come sit next to his dad for a bit because he kept messing with Noah. Then before dinner tonight Noah had to come sit next to his dad for taking the iPad away from his little brother while he was watching a movie on it.
But at the end of the day they hug each other and tell each other they love the other. And I love that.
