My son, Rory, nearly 15, recently met his two week old cousin, John. The whole family were delighted when Rory asked if he could have a cuddle. We expected a teenage disinterest in the baby but, on the contrary, he was transfixed by the little fella and later, when he thought we weren't watching, he knelt down on the floor next to where the baby was lying, stroked his face and held his hand. It was such a tender moment and I hope a special bond will develop between these two lovely boys.
This post is for The Gallery; the theme this week is 'Children'. It gave me another excuse to go all soppy looking at my new nephew: even better with my lovely lad in the picture too!
