Every parent is concerned that a new baby would incite jealousy and upheaval in the lives of their older children. Anna Phipps, a mother, and registered nurse, had that anxiety when they brought their infant son home, but it turned out she didn’t need to be concerned. Her elder son took to the infant right away, adopting him as his own and becoming his first — and greatest — a friend for life!
“Brothers by chance, & (hopefully) friends by choice,” Anna captioned a video she shared on TikTok. In it, we see a montage of the adorable moments her sons have shared since they brought their baby home. It’s clear that her older son is a sweetheart who opened his arms and heart to his brother right from the start!
“We were worried when we brought home baby brother that he would be jealous,” Anna wrote. “He was just happy we brought him his new best friend for life.”
The video struck a nerve online, partially because of Anna’s use of the sweet song, “You’ve Got A Friend In Me,” the theme from “Toy Story.” You can actually see the love these two cuties share! Watch the video below to see their friendship blossom, and don’t forget to share this story.
