One of the sweetest moments as a parent is when your eldest child meets their new brother or sister.

For me, that moment is even more memorable thanks to my older son's reaction to holding his baby brother for the first time.

We knew he would be nervous, but we never expected him to react the way he did.

Watch the video in the player above.

His reaction is priceless and, thanks to this day and age, we caught it all on video.

We posted it online months ago, but recently the video views spiked. Turns out the video was picked up and shared on Buzzfeed and the Kathy Lee and Hoda show and is now making its rounds on the Internet.

The good news is, despite my son's initial reaction, the two of them now are like two peas in a pod. They play peek-a-boo and laugh all the time.

Now if we could only get them both to smile in the same photo...
