Best Buds

DSC_0167-1

Thanks to Cheryl & Ryan’s vacations in Costa Rica and Mexico, followed by our vacation in Florida and Cheryl & Ryan’s 3-day stay in DC in between, Anderson and Lincoln have spent A LOT of time together in the last two months.

Some times were rough. Other times were pure cousin joy.

While Lincoln stayed with us, we taught him the sign for “more” and the “So Big!” trick. While Anderson stayed with Cheryl & Ryan, they taught him how to do sit-ups and push-ups. If you know me and you know Cheryl, that sounds about right.

These two are now pretty much the best of buds. Lincoln is visiting us (with his parents) again this weekend. In 10 days, Anderson is going to Charlottesville to stay with Lincoln for a week. Cheryl and I are swapping kids as much as we can before they move to Pittsburgh in June. We will miss them and our little buddy Lincoln so much!

Speaking of Anderson’s buddies, his girlfriend, Sophie, visited from LA last weekend. Sophie brought her mom who happens to be my high school BFF Sara. Anderson and Sophie were smitten with each other.

Anderson’s life is full of wonderful people. (Mine too.)

How cool is that - having such a good cousin - they're adorable together! :)

Anderson is soooooooo handsome. I'm gonna introduve him to my little girl for sure! : (well, she's not born yet, she's not even our minds, BUT we'll have her someday... :))))

When 2 more brothers come this summer you will really have lots of full time buds to pal around. It is fun to see a picture of Sarah. Haven't seen her in a long time. She really looks great.

Love Dad

Ok Anderson and his cousin could be in little baby advertisements. They are adorable! Also, you are SUCH a cute pregnant lady.
