Thomas loves to help cheer Nicholas up when he cries; whether it's giving him his pacifier (though N-Dawg much rather prefers his hands), rocking him in his car seat when we're trying to get out the door, or singing to him, he sure does try his best to be a great big brother.
I was taking some pictures of them on Mother's Day last Sunday and toward the end Nicholas had had enough and started to cry. I was about to stop, but then Thomas started singing his favorite song, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, to him and it was too easy to switch from picture to video and catch the sweet moment. It actually worked for a little bit...
I love the exasperated expression Thomas gives at the end, as if to say, "Well, I tried!"
It was a nice low-key Mother's Day. I got to sleep late (yay!) and The Hub made me a nice meal of Rasta Pasta with garlic bread, and got me flowers. The best present of all was Thomas' clay handprint they made at daycare that said, "I love Mommy" with the date. They grow up so fast that it's a nice keepsake to have. I love my guys, and love being a Mom!
