these two boys... there are twelve years between them, but the love they have for each other is so solid and heart warming. i often hear about large age gaps between siblings causing unfamiliar reality, which in turn makes the bond between one another difficult. i wonder how things will be with these two as they grow, sailor into a boy and julian into a man. it will be interesting to observe. right now i can only see the love and smiles between these two boys of mine. julian is an incredible older brother and helper. i often have to make him give me my baby back because he wants to hold him all the time.
i grew up an only child, my mother married when i was thirteen which in turn gave me two younger step sisters, but they moved cross country shortly after the wedding to live with their mother, so i spent most of my time alone and have little to compare sibling relationships to.
i just can't imagine these two not being close like they are today. i'm curious... do any of you have a large age gap between your sibling/s? care to share any experience, stories or advice with me?
