She is his best friend. She is someone he asks me to call and see if she can come over to play every day. She is someone he relates almost anything we are doing to: "H goes to Hobby Lobby, too!" "H washes her hands, too!" And most importantly, she is someone who shares his deep love of "chickenfries" and PBS Kids.
They have always been really sensitive to each others' little quirks. They both have "lovies"- H's Woobie and Luke's Bunny. I've always thought it was so cute that even when they were very little, they would bring them to each other when they were upset, or made sure that they weren't forgotten when the play date was coming to a close. And they are also so funny about milk! They have created a silly name for it, combining each of their special nicknames together: "Minima" for H or "Bunnywhop" for Luke becomes "MiniWhop". I find this not only extremely endearing, but a little bit genius, considering they made this up on their own and only use it in the presence of each other.
They (for the most part!) play really sweetly together. They think up things like surprise birthday parties for their stuffed cats and cows, or imaginary shopping trips for batteries and hoagie rolls (Priorities, people!)
Its been so fun to see them grow up together this far, I can only imagine how much fun they'll have over the next few years!
The First Time They Met!
