Playtime with My Boys

Lydia Grace does a science class for homeschoolers at the zoo each week. It's a great opportunity for her to learn and interact with others, and it also gives me some playtime with just the boys.

These two are only 18 months apart in age, so I've often gushed over my hope that they'd grow to be the best of friends. It's been part prayer and part hope. Please, for the sake of peace in the home, let my boys get along...especially since they share the same room. That's not to say that I expect them to never fight, but it is a supreme hope that they develop a very close relationship. Doesn't every momma wish that for her kids?! I may wish it a little more than some because I've had many close family members with less than amicable relationships with their siblings.

After Caleb was born, Eli mostly ignored the new bundle that was taking more of the attention away from him. He just couldn't see the bottle-slurping, babbling baby as a potential playmate. He's had quite a few jealous moments too. Now that Caleb is talking more and trying his best to keep up with his big brother, Eli is starting to see how much fun having a brother can be. Yes!

When these two get going, it becomes an adventure to keep up. They're digging, laughing, running, searching, and on a mission for fun! I'm sure if you have boys, you understand what I talking about. What a fantastic adventure it is! Here they are playing in their matching outfits from Fabkids while their sissy does her class. The clothes are comfy, warm, and perfect for two very active little boys!

  1. What a couple of sweeties! How cute!

    I totally understand about praying they get along. Mine are 2 1/2 years apart and are mostly best friends, but when they fight, it's big. I've always prayed they would get along and so far, so good :)


Each and every one of your comments means so much to me. I love to hear from friends both old and new. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world and thanks for taking the time to let me know you were here.
