Uncle Boomy and his Little Buddy

May 20, 2011

I love how Thaddeus is sitting in this photo.

Bennett was playing sound effects on the computer. Thaddeus was enthralled.

I cannot begin to describe how much Thaddeus loves Uncle Boomy. He LOVES him, and this photo really captures that perfectly.

I’m up in Alexandria with the kids for a few days. We’ve been having a blast spending time with Gramma GG, Pop Pop, and Uncle Boomy.

Bennett is a sweet uncle. He’s kind and attentive to both Ainsley and Thaddeus. When he gets home from school, both the kids light up, but Thaddeus is downright giddy. The only other person he is like this with is Daddy. Bennett says, ‘Hi, little buddy!” in a low, silly voice. And Thaddeus loves it. It’s so cute.

Bennett graduates in a couple weeks. I can’t believe it. It doesn’t seem all that long ago that I was watching him toddle around on his chubby feet. And now, he’s graduating and I’m watching my own little baby toddle around on chubby feet.

And here’s what that makes me think of:

The days are long, but the years are short.

Let’s savor it all, friends.
