Sorry that these are so dark. This is in the bunk house up north. Julius (5) and Samson (17) are sitting on Samson's bed/couch. Samson thinks the Julius and Pauly are "babies" too. (MA and SP call them babies) So Samson's not sure how to interact with them. He thinks they need his help! :o) And he likes that! He likes to help!
So Samson is glad to give a hug or hold a little brother! I can just hear Samson here, he's saying "Aaaaah!" As in what a sweet little brother! Samson is very caring!
But Julius has other ideas! He's very bright! Very quick to read people. And he never thinks of himself as a "baby"! (I don't think Julius knows what a baby is.) So Julius tries to escape this brotherly love! Samson is helping Dad take their picture by hanging on to Julius!
(Samson is a mouth breather, he can't get enough oxygen without mouth breathing. Julius is not a mouth breather! He's learning "tongue in!" :o)
This is another day. Samson is watching Barney. (I know, not age appropriate, but Samson loves to sing, and I even look for excuses to sing with Barney!)
Julius knows what to expect next- more love from Samson, he's already pushing him away!
Aaaaaw! But who can resist a hug from Samson? Not me!! Not even the fiercely independent Mr. Julius! Aaaaw! Brothers!
I thank God for my boys!
