Soren waited seven years for a brother.
Of course, he loved him immediately.
He started right away putting them in matching outfits.
But there wasn’t a lot of brotherly give-and-take involved.
Today he came to me very excited and told me he’d made up a game that Linus could play with him. Linus would alternate tapping Soren’s one knee or the other and Soren would move that knee up and down. Then they do some version of “slap my hand” where there is a winner and loser.
“Mom, come look at our game! It’s finally fun to have a brother!”
