First reaction...

My boy is such a big brother!

It warms my heart to see him 
in his big brother roll...

and other times it breaks my heart.
He took care of a lot of the little kiddo's
in the orphanage, including his little brother,
and often times he 
falls back into this roll.

When one of the other boys wakes in the middle of the night 
his first reaction is to take care of them,
hold them,
soothe them,
rock them,
be silly with them,
and just plain love on them...

but he forgets,
that he can get momma and daddy.
He doesn't have to do that on his own.

I am so thankful for our sweet Donovan 
who wrestles like crazy with his brothers,
but loves them 
with big brother love!

Such sweetness! My son struggles with the caretaker role as well....I'm sure he picked it up from me. :-/ But we're working on it. I want my son to simply be a kid and not take care of people. Thanks for posting this (and the adorable photos!)
