Their Love

“When I grow up, I will marry my brudder, Hemy!” C has been proclaiming lately. I don’t have the heart (or see the need) to explain why that is just not going to happen… but the meaning behind it is so sweet. 

Charlotte loves her brother. She trusts her brother. She finds comfort in her brother. 

Charlie wants to “marry” her brother because they “wuv eachovers” 💕

These two little people are amazing apart and amazing together. It makes my heart absolutely melt and flutter and all the cliche shit. But it’s true. They love eachovers and that is the most beautiful thing in the world. 


Sibling Chats

<Overheard this morning from the driver’s seat>

Henry: Blah blah blah blah blah blah

Charlie: One more time, Hemy. I no unnerstand you.

Hemy: blah blah.

Charlie: I just can’t talk to you right now. I goin’ to my new school to work out. But don’t worry a’cuz ‘grooooowwwwnnuups come back’ <sung to the tune of the Daniel Tiger song’>

<End Scene>

Besties in the Making

It’s starting!! They’re becoming friends and it just makes my heart explode. Tonight when Henry and I came home, Charlotte exploded with pure excitement as she ran over to Henry, threw her arms in the air and lunged toward him to give him the biggest (yet gentle) hug ever.

So. Dang. Cute.

Then, this… This video is everything:

​Then, as Charlie and Mark left for swimming, C gave Henry a big hug and said, “bye Henry! I love you!”


My New Favorite Game

It’s called, “Wait a Minute… I’ve Seen that Photo Before” and I’ve been playing for the past two days. 

Here’s how it works… I take a photo of Henry and as I’m admiring it, I realize… I think I took the same photo with Charlie when she was a babe. So I search and I find said picture and spend the rest of the day marveling at how my children look pretty damn similar to one another.

Here are the photos…

First Family (of 4) Outing 

Today we packed up and made it out of the house for the first time with all four of us (and Milly for added support!!). It was Charlie’s end of the school year picnic.It felt great to get out and enjoy the day and little Henry was perfect (he just slept in the ring sling). 

As a side, It’s lucky that we went, as we were informed that C is now off of school for the next two weeks! Shit… How did I not know this?! 

Here are some other photos from our lovely day together…
