Destined to be Friends

These two are seriously like peas in a pod. Tracey and I knew when we moved to Bend that it would take awhile to make new friends and we would be everything to each other for at least a little while. And so is the truth for our sweet little boys too. "They'll grow up like brothers" we kept saying and waited so long for the day when they would play together instead of along side each other. So the moment has come when these two sweet boys look so forward to spending time together, make sure to include each other in their nightly prayers, and are deviously teaching each other their own bad habits (Kian has learned the art of testing his mommy's limits and Brendan has learned how to pull up a chair to reach the light switches!) So after a much needed break from public humiliation (Brendan displayed his public tantrum ability to the fullest last week and I nearly had a breakdown!) we decided that another "play in public" day would be a little more than we could handle (we had been invited to a weekly "indoor playground" that is held at a local church.) Tracey and I both let out a huge sigh of relief when each of us confirmed that we would rather just get the two boys together at our house than to attempt another group event. So as soon as he heard the knock at the door, Brendan ran down the stairs yelling "Kian and Tracey!!" and Kian could barely get his shoes off before they were headed up the stairs to play. A few moments later this is where we found them... curled up on Brendan's bed underneath a blanket, each with his own teddy bear, Brendan reading Kian a bedtime story (at 11:00 in the morning but who cares when you're playing make believe?) And who could blame us, we couldn't help but smile (and grab the camera of course!)
