I love my sister-- she has always been my best friend. I'm sure I've gotten on her nerves over the years and have beaten her up a time or two when we were little (although I'm sure she totally deserved it!), and yet she still sticks by me. I love how I can talk to her half a dozen times a day and she still answers the phone (she's obviously a glutton for punishment). And we really got close when she was prego with Benjamin the same time that I was prego with Dozer. I highly recommend being prego at the same time as a sister because NO ONE else could possibly be as interested as a prego sister in exactly how big you're getting, how tired you are, what you really wish you could eat and the constant Ugh... it's hard to breathe when you are past the 35 week mark-- oh and all of this repeated several times a day, every day for a very very very long time!
It was really nice having her and her kidlets over this last week-- I miss them already! Speaking of her kidlets, I must say that my niece Emily is quite a cutie-patootie...
Whenever I see her and Dozer together, I can't help but realize how they look so much alike-- as in bright eyes, blonde hair, and very WHITE.
I'm telling you, they look more like siblings than they do with their real siblings. The rest of us are more blah blah brown haired and eyed and skinned!
(Ewww... for some reason that gave me the visual of actually being skinned... Oh let me digress for a split second... In my college biology lab, I walked into the lab and thought to myself What is that piece of driftwood doing on the lab counter? Then I realized it was a skinned cat! I kid you not. Startling, it was. And learning about different muscles the assignment would be, young Jedi.)
Anyhow, moving right along!
It was nice for my littlest man to have a cousin so close in age to play with. Benjamin is only a month younger than Dozer so they totally understand one another, even when nobody else does. Nothing like a pair of 3yo boys to make you smile and keep you on your toes!
Okay Coco, you need to hurry up and get your hiney down here-- closer to ME!
