“A new baby is like the beginning of all things: wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities” – Eda J. Le Shan

8 weeks old - brothers* 4B

11 weeks ago E bounced ‘bum to bum’ with his brother for the last time before I went into hospital to be induced.  Two days later beautiful baby Luca arrived weighing 9lb 1oz. We’re all besotted with our gorgeous, sweet natured boy and can barely remember life without Luca.

He’s 10 weeks old now but E has loved him with a passion since we first told him we were pregnant. Some said that would change when the novelty of having to share Mummy and Daddy wore off, that jealousy would inevitably set in, that the baby was sure to get bopped on the head eventually! These pictures tell a different story; one of unconditional love and devotion and the beginnings of a beautiful sibling friendship.

I’m so proud of how our beautiful, kind hearted, forthright 4 year old has risen to the challenge of being a big brother. What a lucky boy Luca is.

ps. for anyone thinking how like E Luca is – you’re right! Check out E’s birth announcement here

    Lovely bunch of pictures Nic. You and George will one day realise, like us, that being a parent is the best job you’ll ever have, even being a job for life.

      completely agree (especially the bit about always being a parent, you’re a very fine example of that with all the love and help you provide :o)
