ever since choi boy came home and settled in, we've been meeting up with sandra and ben for weekly playdates.
i've already talked about cb and ben's relationship here, and the more time they spend together, the sweeter their friendship grows and the more they enjoy interacting with each other. i know a lot of it has to do with them growing older (sniff!), but i swear, cb actually plays more with ben than he does with other kiddos.
we really look forward to seeing ben and sandra each week and cb excitedly calls out ben's name when i tell him our plans to see them. and the best part is, it's a win-win for all four of us because sandra and i really like each other, too! (right, sandra??) ;)
i got some quick phone shots of the boys when we got together this week. they're just the cutest together!
they sit on the steps and converse about the important things in life (you know, cheese, balls, dogs.):
they chase each other around the park:
and they even give each other kisses:
but the absolute best?
they help each other up when they fall down:
the back story: i've been trying to let choi boy be a little bit more independent by not making a big deal out of it and allowing him to get up from a (minor) fall by himself. so, when cb looked to me and reached out his hand to get him up after he tripped, i told him, "you can do it! you try first!" and then he looked to ben and said, "beh! beh!" and sweet little ben came to his rescue while cb's mean momma took pictures.
p.s. this is my 200th post! that's just crazypants (and a lot of nonsense i've posted on the web)!
