As the baby sister bawls, there’s a big display of brotherly love.

Big brothers have a particular place in my heart. Their protective demeanor and loving arms are the best amounts of consolation that any sister could ask for. They’ll come around to cheer you up if you’re upset, as this video clearly demonstrates. This video is fantastic because it demonstrates that siblings do not need to be at a certain age to learn how to care for someone they care about.

Cal is a toddler still in diapers, but when he hears his baby sister crying, he runs up to her and gives her a hug, repeating the phrase “cutie babies.” Isn’t that absolutely the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? At 0.25, when Cal tenderly touches his sister’s cheek, I couldn’t help but smile.

Nothing beats a real display of affection between siblings, especially when the emotion originates from the heart. Cal, despite his own youth, sincerely cares for his infant sister. It can’t be easy dealing with a new family member who will draw attention away from him, but he clearly accepts his sister with love in this photo.

It’s no surprise that this video has over 1.3 million views on YouTube. You’ll want to watch this video more than once since it’s such a wonderful display of sibling love.
