Then, and now

Dear Jackson,

When Brayden first came into this world, we were unsure about how you would react and adjust. You had been the absolute center of our world and that was about to change drastically. We were worried how you would handle sharing--although you share well at school, it's not quite the same as sharing 24/7--but also we were concerned that you would still feel loved and important. And, would you like or, dare we hope, love Brayden? Or would you throw toys at him when we weren't looking out of jealousy?

Well, it turns out that all that worry was for nothing. You LOVE Brayden. You want to hold him, hug him, kiss him. You bring Mommy diapers and toys for Brayden. You hold his hand and count his toes while Mommy nurses him. You want to play cars and read books together. You make a bee-line for Brayden most mornings. You love to lay on Brayden's playmat with him. You have learned how to say "best friend".

I love, love, love watching the two of you together. It makes my heart smile. Thank you for being an amazing big brother (and for only telling him to stop crying every once in awhile). He is already looking up to you, and I know you will always be there for him.

Love you to the moon and back a million times,
