Best Friends

Today I am under the weather with a stomach bug, and I told Ryan this morning, I needed him to be extra good today, because mama was sick.

He was just perfect, which was so nice.  He played with Cole almost all day, with no hitting, biting, pushing, or other tactics usually employed to make Cole cry.

As I was struggling through, trying to make them lunch, Ryan was playing patty-cake with Cole, who was just adoring the attention his big brother was giving him.  After they were done playing, Ryan said, “Mama, Coley is my best friend,” as he gave him a sweet little hug.  Cole’s eyes lit up, and he was all smiles.

It doesn’t get much better than that, but when my dad stopped by for a short visit this afternoon, he told him as well, that Coley is his best friend.

Motherhood sure has a way of surprising you- I guess after a year of telling Ryan not to hurt his brother, and constantly hearing, “Mom, Cole has my toys,- you need to take Cole away,” something has clicked, and now this little baby, who had upset Ryan’s world so much, is now his “best friend.” 

Even though I am sick and it has been a hard day, just these few little words, has made it one of the best days.



  1. Aw, that is so sweet! Moments like that just make a mommy’s heart melt huh? I love seeing my two boys play nice together.

  2. That is SO CUTE! Your little boys do the cuttest things. Don’t you wish you could capture it all on video?!

  3. sorry to hear you’ve been sick, but what a wonderful, touching moment. 🙂 i bet your heart was swelling with pride. 🙂

  4. I hope you’re feeling better!

    Awwwww! That is too cute! Interestingly it took until just after Q’s 1st bday for S to get past the animosity phase too. They are great buds now and it really clicked right when Q turned 1. I wonder what the secret is 🙂
