Looking up to Brother

For a while, Joshua and Sam didn't connect well. We've been seeing a gradual change in their relationship. Josh has been seeking out time with Sam more and more. Just the other day, we watched them walk hand-in-hand through the house. That's something I don't think we've seen before.

This evening we had another "Awwww..." moment. Sam was snuggled up with a blanket on the love seat reading a book. Josh grabbed a book and joined him. He had to be under the blanket just like his brother. He had to be looking at a book. Here's a picture I snapped before the scene changed.

Sam decided to pick up and read Where the Red Fern Grows. We read it as a bedtime read-aloud at the beginning of the year. He wants to read it again himself. Josh has The Fellowship of the Ring.

By the way, they are both shirtless because we had been playing outside earlier and Sam asked if he could take off his shirt. I gave permission. Immediately, Josh had to have his shirt off, too, just like big brother.

Isn't it sweet?
