BIG Moment!!

I just had to share a beautiful moment with you all...
Jaxton loooves his siblings but hasn't really understood how to do certain things with them. Something he struggles with is knowing how to help them when they need help. For instance, if one of them were to get hurt, he wouldn't really know what to do. He will normally just say to them, "are you okay?" and walk past them. He wants to help and loves them but doesn't quite know what to do.
Today, he really surprised me. While playing with his little sister and brother, his baby brother fell down and was crying. I was busy with something and before I could get to Jude, Jax had picked him up, gently held him by the hand and brought him across the room to me. He put Jude's hand in mine and said to Jude, "there ya go".
I'm pretty sure I stood there in shock for a few seconds. It made me cry. I honestly didn't know if Jax would ever come to a point where he could see someone needed help and actually understand and be able to assist them. Seriously HUGE. I've always known he adores his siblings but this just made me so, so happy to think of him helping and watching out for his little brother.
Proud, proud mommy here.
