Wow I can’t believe it is May! Where has the beginning of this year gone? I feel like each month gets busier and busier and I struggle to keep up with everything we have going on. Our weekends seem all booked up now until I leave for America for two months at the end of June. I fear it will be Christmas before we get to chill out and relax. This month you both have changed so much. You both are really growing up before my very eyes at a rapid speed. I never thought it would really go this fast. It makes me sad when I think about it, like life doesn’t give me long enough to cherish and capture each moment before the next is happening. I never thought that watching you both love each other would be such an honor. I had this notion of watching you both grow and your individual milestones occurring, side by side, but I never dreamed there would be a third honor of watching you both as a team. It’s that extra added pleasure of giving you both a sibling. Someone to be there for you, to trust, that knows everything about you, in the family, forever.
The dynamic between you two has slightly evolved now that you both are getting older. Missy Moo you are crawling all over the place and now big enough to pull yourself up on things which is keeping Mommy very busy in our non-baby proof house. You are not interested in walking, not even close. That’s ok. Your crawl has become a shuffle by dragging one of your legs behind. It’s quite entertaining. All this has brought on a new attitude in you Buba. You don’t understand why she is moving around and getting into things. You now try to be Mommy, for Mommy and yell, “No don’t touch that” and push your sister which always results in tears. I know you are just trying to help Mommy out. So the three of us go round and round all day.
But when you both are being your happy normal selves and not green eyed monsters, together you melt my heart still. Your love for each other is so strong and written all over your faces when you look at each other. Buba you have figured out how to play peakaboo with a blanket with your sister, just the two of you. Something I am sure you have seen Mommy do a million times but when I hear from the kitchen you shouting,”peakaboo” followed by giggles so loud and hard from you Missy Moo, I couldn’t be more proud of the bonding and memories you both are making together along side your secret language that you both share when no one else is around. The one thing that hasn’t changed this month is you both wanting to be with each other at all times. If one is on the bed, the other has to be. When I wake you both up from your naps, Buba you always call out to your sister as I wake you first just to make sure she is getting up too. If one is having a bath the other wants to jump in and join in. Even though you both are starting to pester each other in little ways, you both still want to know where the other is at all times. Like above, while I was taking Missy Moo’s 10 month photos and Buba, all you wanted to do is give her a kiss in between takes. She lit up like a lighthouse when she saw you peep over the basket. Missy Moo your smile to your brother says it all!
