it has been a year since we have seen my sweet and adorable niece, molly. she is just two days younger than choi boy. and in fact, my sister-in-law's due date when she was pregnant with mollypop is choi boy's actual birthday. how cool is that? love it. :)
choi boy and i are in chicago visiting my sister-in-law and her family. one of the best parts about this trip has been seeing molly and cb together. such.ridiculous.sweetness.
yup, i just keeled over. mmmhmmm.
it's funny because even though they are only two days a part, they are different in so many ways. first off, choi boy is a good bit taller than his cousin, though she clearly wins in the chunk department.
which is absolutely acceptable when you are not even 2 and this cute:
ohmygosh i just want to bite those cheeks!
molly is also a total chatterbox and talks in near complete sentences. i am in awe and could listen to her talk all day long. she is a genius. and i'm her aunt, so i can totally show her off and say that with no qualms. ;)
mollypop uses her extensive vocabulary and language skills to be a total bossypants to choi boy. it's hilarious. and cb is fine with being bossed around. or, so it seems, because he doesn't have the words to protest. ha!
we've been joking that molly and cb are like pebbles and bam bam.
molly is cuteness and smarts and choi boy is all brute force and slightly caveman-ish. ;)
regardless of their differences, they've been having such a blast together...they even wake up asking for each other. or, rather, molly wakes up and clearly enunciates cb's name while cb wakes up and goes, "ah-ee!" :)
look at all the fun they've been having!
this is what happens when you get two toddlers to look at you and say, "cheese!" -- no small feat, for sure.
and here are some stinkin' cute shots of molly directing cb in their play.
all i can say is, girl power. :)
one thing choi boy and molly do have in common, however, is their love of food.
i think they could both easily join adam richman's man vs. food nation team. don't you?
and their crossed feeties could be their trademark:
so thankful for cousin love...can't wait to see these two grow up together!
lots more on our chi-town adventures to come!
