It’s been happening for almost nine months now. Slowly. Steadily.
But lately the friendship between these two has become so, so obvious.
Some days I think my eyes are swimming because of sweet moments like this that demonstrate just exactly how they feel about one another. (I don’t think they could have more fun.) It’s useless trying to hold back my happy-tears.
They are so different. Already it’s easy to tell.
One sensitive and creative. One rough and tumble.
One crowned in brown with deep, dark eyes. One crowned in yellow-white with clear blue eyes.
But they are also the same – clever, hilarious, handsome, strong, determined, sweet, and spirited.
Both mine, ours.
Both perfect. (Not flawless, but perfect – there’s a difference, you know.)
Most days I wonder how I got so lucky.
I am so dang lucky.
Dear friends, would you believe me if I told you we’ve been in America for over a week now? And that my husband and I have been sick the entire time? Yeah, it’s true. Like, the in-bed-and-miserable kind of sick. Would you also believe I had a few posts banked up to post during our first week here while we got settled?? And then… I never did? Because turning on the computer for copy and paste just felt like big work at the time? (It really did.) The good news is that we’re on the mend now. (This is really, really good news.) We’re ready to come out of our flu-induced hibernation just in time to introduce all of my boys to their very first 4th of July. (I cannot tell you how excited this makes me!) To kick-start my re-entry to the land of the living I thought I share with you this adorable, wee slice of family life. (They are adorable, right?!) Memos friends, I’ve missed you much. Muah. Tell me, what have I missed on the interwebs?? Or just tell me about how much you love seeing your own children becoming friends. Is it not the best?
p.s. The Baby K’Tan giveaway? I have not forgotten! It’s just that I got buried under a mountain of snotty tissues and couldn’t find my way out for a while. I will post the winner this coming week. Thanks for your patience. I can’t wait to give this awesome little thing to one of you guys.
