Visits with cousins

I have said it before and I'll say it again Jamie's relationship with his cousins is one of my top priorities as his mommy.  This past Sunday we had a great afternoon with Uncle Chris and Aunt Erin along with cousins Christopher and Anna.  I am so grateful to have loving relationship with my "in-laws."  I have become good friends especially with Jamie's Aunt Erin which has resulted in frequent visits to Westminster (in addition to our visits with the Whites, Wilsons and Millers.)  I love watching them play, it brings joy to my heart.  I hope they grow up to be good friends into adulthood.

And today we got to spend more time with cousins!  Aunt Gail, Aunt Sarah, Caleb, Aunt Mattie, Anabelle and Violet spent the day at our house.  It was great of course, but with some interesting 3 year old behavior which my dear cousin Mattie says is completely "normal."  My little man has quite the curiosity with "bottoms."  Our first peek into this new "hobby" of Jamie's is when it was oh so quiet in the playroom.  When Mattie asked how everyone was doing  Anabelle informed her that Jamie was tickling her bottom.  Okay, so I explained to Jamie that isn't a part that we tickle.  A while later Jamie comes upstairs holding his hand out heading to the bathroom and we notice something on his hand.  "Jamie is that chocolate?"  Well with one sniff Mattie informed us it far from chocolate.  Jamie had reached into Caleb's diaper and, well got a little surprise on his hand.
Well regardless it was super.  We shared a great day, talked about past fun and got excited about future fun.

Jesus thank You for my family, what a gift.
