Boy Population

oldest youngest boys

Oldest son and youngest son.

They are so much alike in some ways. And so different.

Oldest son was born into a family with two older sisters. He was our first boy, our only boy for almost six years.

So he was the baby.

And the only.

And then, once 5 of 8 was born, the oldest brother.

He was almost 11 when the twins were born, when his mini-me, 8 of 8,  entered the world.

And he has embraced his role as the oldest of the three boys. He is their mentor, their protector, their instructor, something of a second dad at times (much to their consternation).

Oldest and youngest.

Both so sweet.
