When we were outside this week, the boys were creating their own games. They were making each other laugh, rolling balls back and forth, and crawling around the yard together pretending to be puppies. I have noticed that they are really starting to act like playmates. Then inside last night, while I was making dinner, they came up with a game where one would make a silly noise into an empty dried apricot container, and hand it to the other one, who would make a noise and give it back. An added bonus of this brotherly cuteness- much easier to get dinner ready when they are playing together!
My husband and his little bro are very close (even though my brother-in-law lives in Dubai), and I would love for my boys to be as close as they grow. Below, my husband and his little bro in a childhood pic from the Ukraine, and recently, by the Baltimore Inner Harbor.
