Brotherly Love

Our two boys really love each other, and I have unfortunately missed a few humerus moments, that I didn't have a charged video camera for, or the camera was not convenient, and by the time I had it out, the moment was gone. That being said, there are also a few moments that I was able to catch on camera.
Ethan looks terrified, but really, he loves his brother, and especially his toys...
Ethan's love for Skylers toys has often brought on tears from a devastated 2 year old that is far from mastering the art of sharing. Thankfully Ethan is still too young to really care, as long as Skyler replaces one toy with another he is good as gold!

Skyler is really protective of his little brother, if it is someone else cause his turmoil. (Skyler likes to torment the little guy) All of the many things that I have spent the last 2 1/2 years teaching Skyler are dangerous - scissors, the stove, cars in parking lots etc. he makes sure Ethan is no where near, often to the point of me laughing, or Skyler Crying. Recently Skyler broke into tears because Ethan had touched the bottom of the oven door, while I was cooking on the back burner of the stove.

This last picture was one of those, I missed the moments. I had been upstairs, and on my way down I could hear Skylers comentary " you go in there Enan, now I bang... my turn, you bang, bang, bang, bang..." I sat on the stairs and observed totally upset that my video camera had a dead battery. Skyler was shoving Ethan into the bucket and banging, and then he would rip the bucket away from Ethan, put it on his head, and try to make Ethan hit it. The strange thing to me was that Ethan seemed to be enjoying this torment as much as Skyler!
