Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is "What makes your heart leap?"  I feel as though I need to change my "What Makes You Jump For Joy" post from a couple of days ago because these are actually two different reactions/emotions, but, I won't.  I'll just share with you something I posted to Facebook yesterday.  My boys were both enjoying their own bowl of grapes and the instant Captain Fussybuckets ate the last grape out of his bowl, Baby D picked it up, climbed up on the chair to the sink where the bowl of grapes were sitting, put a few in the Captain's bowl, and carried them back over to him.  Baby D is only 17 months old, but he already has so much love and consideration for his brother, it's unreal!  My heart definitely leapt in that moment!  Who knew that a toddler could even notice that his brother was out of grapes?  His bowl was still full of grapes, but he wanted to get his brother some more.  I really hope there are many more moments like that one, even on into the teenage years and adulthood.  The boyshave such a special bond and I hope they always continue to take care of one another!
