this and that

A new series of things we do around the house, and favorite moments of the week.

this and that.

This week we had the pleasure of baby sitting one of M’s best friends Levi. Levi is the son of some of our best friends here in San Francisco. We have known them for years and the friendship keeps getting better and better. We have watched their lives shape into something so beautiful. We knew Josh before he found Alexis, and we have watched that relationship grow from dating to engagement, to marriage and now to parent hood. And it has been such an honor to be apart of each chapter of their lives. The best part is we are now neighbors, and they are always up for last minute visits and game nights. One of the things that has been so special is watching our children grow from babies to toddlers. When Alexis was pregnant and we were still in the long fost-adopt certification process, I often became discouraged and thought we would never get a child. She was always so encouraging and would tell us not lose heart, that the perfect baby would come at the perfect time. She also thought that we would have children together, and she never gave up on the thought that we would bring a baby home when they did. She was right, and the timing was perfect. One short month after Levi was born, we brought home our five month old baby girl. We now have children together, and it has been wonderful.

Watching Levi a few times a month is something M loves. They are at such a fun age, now they can actually play together and communicate to each other in their baby babble. They loved to chase each other around the house, and make each other laugh, it is so fun to watch. I so look forward to them growing up together and becoming the best of friends.

Library loot. I loved going to the library as a child and I know that helped my love of books now. I want to make this a routine, and become something she loves as well..she already loves books almost as much as me

    Watching these two grow up together is the best! I remember being so sure that you were going to have a baby at the same time – good thing that worked out 😉
