I love you both today,
Ten times more than yesterday,
But nowhere near what I will,
Buba you are growing up so fast, becoming a little boy right before my very eyes, along side your sister, who is growing equally as fast. You have even noticed how grown up she is getting too. You two are still inseparable best friends but lately the hugs from you Buba have been getting tighter, the kisses have force behind them, and your gentle hands have started to flail all over the place, around your sister. I don’t think you mean her any harm, you just get so excited that she is pulling herself up and moving around. She is now coming to your level. I think this puzzles you and you want to push her down, back where she used to be just lying on the floor.
To Missy Moo’s knowledge you are still the same big brother, that she squeals with excitement when she catches your eye. When you come in close she is waiting for those signs of affection and even when you shovel too hard, or kiss with a head butt instead she is still full of giggles and smiles for you. She has adapted to your new ways, and nothing you do seems to phase her. Even above as you shovel your forehead into hers almost toppling her over, her face is adorned with the biggest smile as she holds onto you for support.
Buba we took you to the eye doctor and found out you are struggling with your eyes. Glasses and an eye patch with be needed to help you see. Mommy is upset, hoping it’s a quick fix and not something that will be ongoing. You were so brave during the eye test, holding Mommy and Missy Moo’s hand. When we got home, you couldn’t stop telling Missy Moo all about what you did and showing her your proud big boy sticker, even though she was right there with you.
I truly believe it was having her there with you that kept you calm and feeling safe. Usually you are not stranger friendly but you topped the charts with your patience and corporation, on this day, I was ever so impressed. Pointing out various things for Missy Moo to look at, as the doctor played with your eyes.
May you both always be there for each other, learning and growing together, and never lose this bond that you have created. Keep your secret language that you share, safely between you, it is something that is sacred.
