“We weren’t sure how Brooks would react to having a baby around and whether he’d get jealous of having to share attention,” Ashlyn explained. “But it was really sweet, he already loves her so much.”

“When he first met her in the hospital, he reacted exactly the same way so we just had to capture it on video,” she shared. “He is such a loving young boy, and we were just so tickled by his reaction.”

We’re tickled too!

It’s clear from the comments and shares on the video that we’re all tickled with Brooks.

Brooks is such a sweet big brother and the internet adores him. The video has been shared over 10,000 times on Facebook alone and thousands have commented and expressed their delight.

“My heart, cutest ever,” one person wrote.

“A bond so strong already, how beautiful is that?” another added.

One out of every 700 children is born with down syndrome.

Brooks has down syndrome and about 6,000 babies born each year also have the condition. “Babies with Down syndrome have an extra copy of one of these chromosomes, chromosome 21,” according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The condition usually requires therapy, but many people with the condition go on to lead happy lives. We’re so thrilled that this video is making waves on the internet. Brooks is such a beautiful big brother and we love his love for his newborn sister.

  1. This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited here online on the 22 of MARCH and i saw a marvelous testimony of a woman from United States on the forum about the good works DR BAKABA I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR.BAKABA did a marvelous work for me that restored my mirriage of 4 years by getting back my husband back i just as i read on the internet I was truly shocked when my husband knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR.BAKABA For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of my marriage. Contact him now for any kind of help via Email; [email protected] or you add him on whatsApp number +2347063836098 or call HIM, THANKS DR BAKABA i will always tell the world how you bring my family back
