I love watching my boys play together. It’s taken awhile, but Cody has finally accepted Eli as part of the family. Now that Eli is more mobile and can actually do things, Cody thinks he’s pretty neat. He’s become so wonderful with his little brother. He can make Eli laugh like nobody else. He now initiates taking pictures with his brother (before we’d have to bribe him to even sit next to him!). He picks activities that Eli can join in on as well (sometimes). He truly has love for him. It is such a relief. I was worried there for a bit.
I am so thankful every day for my two boys. God blessed me by making me their mommy. Parenting is definitely challenging at times, but today I am reminded that the rewards (hugs, kisses, the random “I love you Mommy” from the backseat of the car) far outweigh anything else. ❤️
