The little brother is so fun to watch – because he soaks up everything the big brother does. Bryson does so much more, so much earlier than Matthew did at this age, and that’s because he has a fantastic big brother who likes to teach him and include him in (almost) everything he does. They are best buddies, so it’s only natural that Bryson would be addicted to sports, balls, and music like Matthew is.
Matthew was napping well when Bryson woke up today, so I took him outside to play by himself. I knew he’d go straight for the T-ball stuff. But I didn’t know he’d first grab the ball and take it out to the grass, then return to the garage for the T, and then return a final time for the bat. He set his game up all by himself, and then amazed me by putting the ball on the T, hitting it off, and doing that over and over again. When it was time to go in, he returned each item to the garage, and into the T-ball tub, before grabbing my hand and heading for the door.
Big kid in a little kid’s body. I love it!
