A Big Brother

Just found out today that Easton is going to have a little brother. Ultrasound looks good and everything seems to be fine with the baby, an answer to prayers. We are really excited and I'm glad that Easton will have someone close to his age to be friends with as they grow up. I've been thinking about all the things he can teach his little brother. I'm hoping he will teach his brother to:

sing and play the piano (it's hilarioius to watch Easton sing with his keyboard he gets very into it)

say I love you mama/dada

"run faster" (that's his latest thing to do, he starts running and then says run faster run faster!)

play blocks

"help you mama" (he always wants to help with everything and if he can pass that on to little bro I would love it)

go to church (easton loves going to church, even if during the services sometimes you can't tell)

and many more...

Even though I know there are other not so great things he will teach his brother to drive his parents crazy, I think Easton will be a great big brother. This little one will be lucky to have him in his life. God has blessed our family so much and I can't wait to meet its newest member. Although now I am VERY outnumbered.

yes, there's gonna be a lot of testosterone in the house! ha ha. But, you did have two bros of your own. Hopefully you'll get a girl thrown in there somewhere to balance everything out! Congrats for a healthy baby

Yes! I am happy that it is another boy because, as I thought when you were so sick,BOY. The boys being close in age is just like a built in friend. Enemy at times but, for the most part, buddies.
I know Cody helped Travis to walk. He would grab on to Cody's shirt and off they would both go.
I wish I could have ordered another girl for Meleah so that she would have had the same experience but they have their moments too. Like when they all play Littlest Pet Shop together. Priceless.

I read this post and cried. I'm not usually an emotional person but I sort of lost it...maybe because I grew up with amazing brothers (older and younger) and I know how meaningful the relationship between siblings is.
