This photo was taken this morning at about 7am. My dear Nicholas was in his dreamland when baby Ryan crawled away and calling out to the birds outside the window. This woke Nicholas up. With his half open eyes, he saw Ryan was trying to stand up and without waiting, my dear Nicholas dashed behind Ryan and put his protective hands around him.
His natural instinct to protect his brother really touched me. He had shamed me with this beautiful act of his! Mommy was still glued to the mattress, too lazy to wake up!!
But my dear boy, hearing his brother's voice, woke up straight away! Seeing his brother is standing up, dashed right behind him to act as cushion in case his brother falls!
Oh..thank you, my darling, I'm really so proud of you!
