Porter and Rigby

Porter has made up (out of nowhere) this little song:

Rigby Boo, Rigby Boo
Here I come
Rigby Boo, Rigby Boo
(then usually something with the word STINK in it) (he's allowed to say stink...)

and I think it's the most adorable thing in the world. It's more of a chant than a song but he "sings" it to Rigby a few times a day and I adore it. I am loving the way their relationship is growing. All on his own Porter has nick named Rigby Rigby Boo and sometimes it's just Brother. Porter is an incredibly protective brother - I can't leave the house or a store or the van without him saying "don't forget Rigby!" or "we can't leave Brother!" or something similar. I often overhear him saying "it's ok Rigby, I'm here," and little comforts like that. As a mother I am so in love with our newest addition and the joy he has brought to us but I can't help think what a wonderful gift it's been for Porter to have a sibling, especially a brother. Rigby gives Porter the biggest smiles he's got and no one can make him laugh like his big brother. Porter does pick on him somewhat (tonight I said, "give Rigby a kiss goodnight" and he said "I'll give him a headbutt!" ) but I know that he has so much love for that little boy and I am so grateful he is going to be a strong leader and good example for his brother.

Ok, ok, now I'm all teary eyed and sniffling but really, I don't know what greater joy I could have than being a mom and watching my children love each other.


  1. Aaaw! Now I'm teary eyed too! Love those two brothers! And I kinda love sisters too!

  2. Aw so cute! They are going to be the best of friends.

  3. Cute! Nate had little nickname's for Ty and McKenna when they were babies too. Its so sweet.


Straight up now tell me...
