Entries in brothers (2)


sunday morning

August 29.  I spy...





holding hands

Ever since his brother was in my belly, we've been drilling it into June29 that his main purpose in life is to look out for his little brother. For the most part, our barking orders have fallen on deaf ears. But I figure if we keep on it, eventually he'll get it.

It wasn't until recently - specifically this past weekend at the Hotel Del - that I realized maybe our efforts are starting to sink in. Every so often, we'd catch a few moments - sometimes brief, sometimes prolonged - of them holding hands. "DD, come, hold my hand," he'd beckon. His brother would oblige and off they'd go.

Towards the gentle waves...

...into the maze of our hotel room...

...and even during bedtime.

This makes me happy.
