One of the things I love about parenting is watching the relationship between my two boys grow and deepen. I love seeing Limerick’s eyes light up when he hears Rondel coming, and hearing Rondel ask if Limerick’s done eating yet so he can play with him. I love the way Limerick does his best to copy everything Rondel does, and participate in every silly game Rondel comes up with. I love how Rondel snuggles up to Limerick and lets him climb all over him.
Tonight they were looking out the window together:
Limerick isn’t as fascinated by the cars outside as Rondel is, but he’s extremely interested in anything Rondel happens to be doing – and Rondel, despite his sometimes intense dislike of being touched, is growing a lot more tolerant of Limerick’s close and enthusiastic physical presence.
Instead of getting upset because Limerick was in his space, he just moved over and made room for his brother to look out the window too.
Then all of a sudden they both turned around and realized I was there watching them!
Someday they’re going to go on all kinds of adventures together, those two – and I can’t wait to see what they’ll do 🙂
