we've slowly been introducing choi boy to our friends and i'm finding that our boy seems to be quite the social butterfly. and in true social butterfly form, he has absolutely adored meeting new people, especially people who are about his size. choi boy just lights up when he sees other kids and it's been so fun to watch his interactions with his new pals.
first up, choi boy met baby grant, who, if you remember, is one special baby with one special momma. choi boy was so curious and just wanted to be near baby g all night.
choi boy had a baby foster sister/buddy during his last few months in korea, so i think he was really excited to see another wee one.
the sweetest was just before baby g was leaving, his momma put him in his carseat with a cover over it since it was so cold outside. baby g started to cry, and choi boy walked over, opened the little flap on the cover, and patted baby g's chest. i know, awwwwwwwww, right??
i can't wait to see these two littles grow up together. i'm still amazed that tina and i get to experience mommahood together! :)
my friends, sandra and christy, came over and it was so fun to see ben and choi boy "play" together. ella was very sweet about sharing her toys, but in the end, she decided it was more fun to play by herself than with two babies -- and understandbly so!
there were times where we saw this -- ben and choi boy looking like they were going to work on something together...
there's ella in the background!
but most of the time, we saw this:
notice choi boy's leg *on* the m@gna doodle!
i'm so thankful to have blog buddies turned friends IRL so close by! next time, we'll have to get together with christy's ben, and one day, we'll have a playdate when her littlest monkey is home from korea. :)
finally, choi boy got to meet his beloved betrothed, kate. actually, kate has several contenders competing for her heart, so i've suggested doing a season of baby bachelorette. can you imagine? "choi boy, will you accept this bottle?" ha!
on their first date, kate wasn't too sure about choi boy, but he tried to ease her in by showing off his family pictures:
i'm pretty sure he's saying, "you see, kate, if you choose me, this could be *your* family, too!" :)
the second time they got together, choi boy tried to show off his dexterity by playing with kate's ball popper.
the lovely kate wasn't too impressed. after all, she's the ball popper expert that showed choi boy how to use in the first place. so instead, choi boy tried to woo her with his charm.
he was laying it on a little too thick, so we'll have to work on his game a bit. ;)
it's so fun watching choi boy hang out with all these buddies that have waited for him to come home. i can't wait to see how their playtimes will evolve as they grow up together!
