Plays Well with Others

We've been hosting some of our closest friends from grad school this weekend and having a blast. We've laughed over old stories, caught up on each others' lives, shared meals and late-night confessions, and played more games than we have since Sam was born.

We knew the four adults would have a great time and have been looking forward to this visit for several weeks, but there was one wrinkle - our friends have a son who is six months younger than Sam.

Remember the post about Sam saying "excuse me?" What I didn't mention is that he usually says it while pushing another child out of the way. Needless to say, we weren't sure how Sam and Will would get along.

When our friends arrived Friday night, they put Will on the floor and he crawled right to Sam. They looked at each other and burst out laughing before playing chase around the couch. Sam spent the rest of the weekend crawling and babbling baby talk with Will, starting each morning with a croaky, "where's Baby Will?" It was truly amazing to see them play together and have such a good time.

Now, hopefully the rest of the week with Eli will be just as smooth and just as much fun for the little ones as it will be for us.

How sweet! But you'd better be careful or Sam will be asking for a younger playmate that's a live-in (ie, sibling!).

Let's hope that Sam doesn't get any ideas about a little sibling too soon!

Becky, we'll be in Arkansas most of July - we definitely must get together!

Andrew Jaime, we want to see pictures of Mari and Ryan's wedding.
