It's finally happening. Michael and I have been looking forward to the day Bennett and Jasper would start playing together with great anticipation. And though it may not seem like a big deal to most, it was THRILLING to both of us today when Bennett fed his brother some Cheerios, then they played a little game of "chase" (Bennett did the running around, Jasper did the crawling and chasing). Both of them were laughing and giggling as Bennett darted back and forth and all around and Jasper worked to keep up.

Their relationship, even this early on, is yet another blessing the Lord has bestowed on us. Bennett ADORES his baby brother and is very protective of him. He loves showering him with kisses and tickling him and blowing on his tummy after diaper changes. And he LOVES their bath time together. Jasper will lean and stretch and squeal at his big brother until I put him down to play and get in the mix of whatever Bennett is up to. He thinks everything Bennett does is hilarious and giggles until he gets the hiccups.

Thank you, God for orchestrating our boys and our family so perfectly.
