Clee has shown little interest in his little brother. This has never bothered Andrew. Andrew gets Clee and understands that it's nothing personal.
The first few years of Andrew's life, the only attention he received from Clee either ended with booboos on the head, bursts of laughter from Clee during Andrew's tantrums, Clee taking his candy, or a trip to the ER. The ER thing only happened once... sheesh guys. I'm not that bad of a mom.
It wasn't until recently that Clee would follow his little brother around, and was remotely interested in what he was doing. He has come along way.

There once was a brief moment in time where Clee showed joy and love towards his brother. It was the day we brought Andrew home from the hospital. He was two weeks new, and Clee couldn't get enough of him. Clee cooed, and stared closely at Andrew with an ear to ear grin. He was in awe by this new member of our family. It didn't last long, but whenever I start to pity Andrew for having a brother who rarely shows any interest in him, I think back on that day and other similar small moments and remind myself that Clee does in fact love his brother.

Clemon kisses. Sooo sweet!!!

Curse my fidgety hands for making this sweet memory a blurred one!!

{shaking fists}

Now Emme on the other hand, he adores.

That will never change, he has adored her from the very first time he saw her.

And I knew he would come around with Andrew too.

He and Emme are such the cute pair. And Andrew makes the best big little brother ever. Love the newborn pictures of baby Andrew. That hair.
