Owen has always been indifferent about the whole idea of a little brother. When we brought Ethan home from the hospital, he just shrugged it off as an everyday event. Owen complained about all the noise that a baby makes and didn't like the idea of sharing "mommy time". When Ethan became mobile, Owen was very sensitive to the idea of somebody else playing with his toys. So the past year has been a hard transition for Owen, to say the least.
Today was a turning point of sorts. I was in my bedroom folding laundry (I promise that not ALL of my posts will refer to laundry, but it does seem like I'm always doing the ongoing chore!!!) and heard giggling from BOTH boys at my feet. I glanced down and saw Owen throwing a ball to Ethan, and then Ethan rolling it back. Ethan thought it was funny to see the ball rolling and Owen thought it was funny to hear Ethan laugh. An ongoing cycle of giggles was taking place between the two brothers. Needless to say, it made me smile. My little blessing of the day; captured.
