Tender moments

Shortly after we picked up Gavin's glasses and we were walking towards the car, Landon said something that I can't get out of my head. We were praising Gavin left and right at how handsome he looked, and how proud we were of him for keeping the glasses on, etc..

I think the excitement gave Landon the wrong impression.

He turned to me and said, "Mom, now Gavin can see!"

He had a smile from ear to ear, and anxiously waiting for my response, staring straight into my eyes.

Troy explained, and he understood.

I'm sure they will be at each others throats as they get older, but the kindness he has for his baby brother is truly touching. Everyday, many times a day, I see the small gestures to help him, or to keep me in check when I have let Gavin cry a minute too long. He's on top of making sure Gavin has all he needs and he is so unselfish of himself, even at the tender age of 5 if it means it will benefit his brother. I love wathcing him love Gavin and the gratification Gavin gets in his smiles when he knows his brother is near him.

Maybe Landon will one day be my little scientist that will find the cure for blindness and give his brother the ultimate gift. ;)
