Best Friends

Carla took this of Izzy at Picture People

Conner and Izabella are 5 1/2 months apart. They're both Three years old now and before they could walk or talk, we could tell they were building a bond. Once they could walk we really knew. They played together so well without saying a word. At Izzy's toy Kitchen or in one of Conner's little Trucks. I've even seen Conner part with one of his most treasured cars for a few moments so Izzy could play with something. They will fight (but not that much) and play and look out for each other in ways I haven't seen a lot of in this age. Aunt Lyndsey has Conner now for the 5 hours Carla works during the day, every week day. I worried they'd really start fighting, but other than a few incidents everyday, they continue to play like the Pals they are.
It amazes me and I can't wait to spend more time just watching these two play.
It's a terrible thing to say, but it won't surprise people who know me well, I hope they can celebrate together (with a designated driver) well and long when Izzy reaches 21. I hope they're in the same during their  College years;  AND that they're still looking out for each other way into their middle and golden years.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.

Diego and Alayna are 2 1/2 years apart and this is how they are. Diego is a big brother who worries and takes care of his little sister. He does everything to make her happy even if it means giving up toys, food, chairs, or whatever he owns to please her. And she just sdores him. But all this spoiling makes her think she's the Princess and can get away with anything! LOL Sometimes if I tell her NO... Diego will try and reason with me so that he doesn't have to see his sister sad. I also hope they maintain this relationship.

Alayna is also 7 months (to the day) younger than her cousin Ducky (my sister's only child) and the DO NOT get along AT ALL! LOL I would have thought that being the same age (they are both 3 as well) would make them great buddies but for them it's the complete opposite.

Our babies are so cute!!! I just love them! And you're right, they do truely love each other! They'll be close for the rest of their lives. I'm sure they'll go through a time of being to cool for each other...but there is no way they can be apart for to long. They have something very unique and I love it!

I really enjoyed reading this and can totally understand that bond. I think Cayden and Kenzie will have that since they see each other more than the other cousins.

This was a great post and adorable photos.

Oh man, grandkids, a gift from above. I love my seven grandkids in a very special and different way. I think we are sort of alike in that sence. I am the total family man and I can see you are the same.
