Trey made another woman cry today!

Yup, it's true. But in a good way. It's such a funny thing, he is always making ladies get all choked up because of his kindness and helpfulness to his siblings. It's happened several times lately. When Roslyn was born and we were still in the hospital, the boys and Ryan came to visit me. The nurse who had been helping me my whole visit there saw Trey loving and holding the baby and got so choked up she had to excuse herself from the room and kept apologizing about it later.
Just last week the boys went to the dentist and I waited in the waiting area with Roslyn. Apparently Trey was in the back helping Justin as usual. He was helping him at the drinking fountain to rinse his mouth and I don't know what else. Then we came back there and he was holding the baby. The receptionist was so touched that she gave Trey a $10 gift card to Jamba Juice! She said she was behind her desk and kept watching him and she kept getting all emotional over it.
Today we were getting in the car after school and one of Justin's teachers was with us and she saw Trey help Justin and she got all choked up. This scenario happens again and again. It is second nature to Trey to just help his brothers, and sister too. But especially his brother Justin who has special needs. I've been watching him do this since he was little, it's totally natural to him. On Justin's dresser I have a little statue of two boys, one is carrying the other and it says, "He's not heavy father, he's my brother!" As soon as I saw that a few years ago, I knew I had to have it. It perfectly describes the relationship between those two brothers, Trey and Justin.
