Great Times With My Brothers!

I see a big difference in Gavin since our other boys have been home for summer vacation. He is SO happy! I think that he is happier having all the commotion going on with his brothers home all day. He is more vocal and more active. And, he is certainly getting a lot more attention!

Snuggle time with big brother Caleb:




Playtime with big brother Nolan:



Sleepy time with big brother Jacob:




I love that our older boys love Gavin! It makes me so happy to see them WANT to be with him and WANT to play with him! They truly enjoy having him as their brother, even though he can't do a whole lot or get up and play with them. As I type this they are all rolling around the living room floor and making silly noises together. This makes their Momma's heart feel so full!

Gavin LOVES his brothers and his brothers LOVE him!

*Just so you know, as soon as I typed about them playing so well together, Nolan came to tell me that Caleb had bitten his leg and then Caleb came to tell me that he bit Nolan's leg because Nolan was sitting on top of him! I guess we have to take the good with the bad! Life with the VW brothers is never boring, that's for sure!*

So cute! I can't believe that he fell asleep like that on Jacob, it's adorable! And, I'm a little jealous you got them to sit still long enough for that to actually happen;)

Boys will be boys. I love how my boys are Jax protector. I bet they help Gavin progress when they play with him like that.
Give that boy a big kiss from me and Jax.

Great pictures! So cute! I'm sure it is good for Gavin to have his brothers around--and probably nice for you to get (a little?) break--in some ways.

From another mom of BOYS, this makes me happy too. Noah and Joel dont always give Alex the attention I would like them to, but when they do it warms my heart.
Of course there is always the fighting, can we make it a day without it???

What an awesome gift for you! God truly has blessed us all with special families that help us through the hard times and remind us when we least expect it that we are loved and blessed. I'm so happy to hear that your boys are so good with Gavin that is one of my prayers for Wesley that he too will have a tender and compassionate heart not just to Isabelle, but to all people no matter what life has dealt them.

I'm going to come over there and slap you. People would much rather see cute pics of Gavin than listen to my whine. I need my Gavin fix.
