Alex is my 13 year old who has been asking for another little brother for about five years now. It took a while, but we finally have one for him.
With their age difference, there's a good chance that Alex will be going off to college when Aiden is about 6 years old. This thought makes me sad, actually. But it is what it is. The fact is that there is a 13 year age difference between these two, and only a short time of Aiden's childhood will know Alex living in the house with him. Alex is aware of this, too, and he's determined to spend as much time as he can with his baby brother in these next six years. This photo is just one example of how Alex is bonding with his baby brother. He let Aiden take his nap on him like this, and I believe Aiden slept for at least an hour. It was such a sweet moment in time, and I'm so happy I captured it in a photo.
I think in the years to come, the both of them will treasure this photo. I know I will.
