Buba, your have become your uncle. I watch you and your sister and it’s like watching an old movie of me and Uncle R with a little more age gap but not much. The way you love and pester your sister at the same time, the way you want her to play but only with certain toys, it’s the same. I see flashbacks of when I was growing up while I watch you and your sister interacting. I see it in the photos I capture of you both. The best part of it is I am hoping that if you are like us back then I hope you will be like us now. We are close, we share our daily lives and adventures still together even when there is a whole ocean between us. We have a strong bond. I can see you and Missy Moo developing this and I hope it long continues into your adulthood. You are a great big brother, protective of her when other kids push her over at the park in the soft play area. It’s a “only I can push my sister” kinda of love. It tickles me. I know what that love is like and it is the type only siblings can give you. You are finding your emotios now too. You get upset more when you don’t understand something and we try to explain it the best way we know how. We are attempt to get through the night without you wetting the bed. It’s a long process but one we hope you will master before September and you start school. I fear your heavy sleeping is not helping you or I in the matter, but I stay optimistic.
Missy Moo, your hair is growing in, on a daily basis and now lies down the nape of your neck. I can’t believe it. We have bought you barrettes for it now as your headbands were started to rub your head too much with your hair. You look so grown up with barrettes in your hair now. I sit and wonder where my baby has gone? How are you going to be two years old this year? Did I miss it? Your baby days seemed to have been shorter than your brothers. You seem to have grown up faster and more mature than he did at this age. You know how to manipulate us as well as your brother, it’s a fine art I must say. Your words are coming on everyday, with new ones added and a better pronunciation too. I am looking forward to this summer in America again with you so you can take it all in more. You won’t just be a baby lying in the shade but a toddler running and jumping in Grandma’s pool no doubt right along side your brother. You love watching him and learning everything he is doing or saying and copying it. I think that’s part of the reason you are growing up so fast as you have a great model to lead you even in your naughtiness. My little partners in crime, you make me laugh, you make me cry and for all of it I love you!
