FAMILY, n.-The ones you live with, laugh with and love.
How do children know who there extended family are? It must be innate or maybe they sense a feeling of belonging. Ben is pretty reserved around people he doesn’t know or see often. But not this weekend as I watched him play and interact with his Cousins, Aunts and Uncles, and Grandparents. Ben just adored having his cousins Tom and Maggie stay on the weekend. It was magic to watch them play together. Andrew and I just loved the house being full with family.
Our house was a pit stop on the way to a very special event. All that could make it were heading to Cousin Hugo’s first birthday. It was wonderful to be able to share in Al, Claire and Hugo’s special day. We enjoyed catching up with family and friends new and old. Ben certainly enjoyed the party. He ate the entire bowl of cheezels by himself! Hugo was an absolute delight and had enough cuddles to go around for everyone. Happy Birthday Little Man – we hope to celebrate many more with you. xoxox
