A Letter from Big Brother Diego (age 5)


Dear Joaquin,

Baby, I like you so much because you are so cute and fuzzy. I am happy to be your big brother. I like to play with you and put your toys in front of you so you can crawl to get them. I like to call you “Softy” because you are so soft. When you grow up some day, I’ll miss you as a baby because you are so cute. When you are 5 years old, I’ll be 11! I want to teach you how to play soccer, basketball and baseball. I love you very much.

Diego

What a wonderfull way for Mateo to describe his baby brother.
"Cute and fuzzy", which Joaquin certainly is, and "Softy", and that he is also. Mateo, Diego and Joaquin are blessed to have each other as brothers!
