How have I let so many months go by without another brotherly love post? I don't have a great answer, but I am thrilled to report that the love train is still in service. It's true that they are very difficult to photograph together these days; they're basically a big blur of giggles and wiggles and overly intense hugs. These two; it's really more than this mama's heart can handle.
Whilst his big bro pretty much wrote the book on catching shut eye, Ronan is not a good sleeper, but thus far, room sharing has gone really well. Ronan's favorite thing to do in the morning is try to wake his brother up. He stands in the corner of his crib and makes the loudest noise known to man, it's like a high pitched "WA-WA" siren sound. If he succeeds in rousing Jude, he is rewarded with smiles and hugs and equally noisy "Good Mornings"!
The first time we all saw Ronan take a few steps, Jude rushed over to him, gave him a hug and whispered in his ear "I'm so proud of you". Jude can always get Ronan to smile, and he is incredibly patient and kind. For his part, Ronan worships his brother.
I'll admit that they don't bathe together regularly; it has become a bit of a treat. They both get so excited (and slippery) it's a little dangerous (and exhausting for us parents), but like most things, they prefer to do it together.
Here's to brotherly love, may they (and I) remember these moments always.
