Best Buddies

When we found out I was pregnant with Colby we were a bit surprised that it was a boy. I had envisioned two little girls a few years apart in age that I could dress alike and that they would be the best of friends. Little did I know that Sam and that little boy would be the best of friends. I figured he and Brett would become buddies but I guess with the large gap in age (almost 6 1/2 yrs) they just couldn't hang out. Brett is too old to play baby games with Colby but Sam has no problem. It tickles me to death when I see Colby value his sisters opinion so greatly. He wants to be just like his big sister. (not in the girlie stuff though, thank heaven, when it comes to guns and sports he's all boy) I don't know where it came from but they call each other "Best Buddy." I often hear Colby calling "best buddy, best buddy where are you?" I hope someday He and Brett will be best buddies but maybe that will come later in life. I also hope Sam's love for Bonnie won't wain and when she becomes too cool for Colby Bonnie will become her "best buddy." She is such a great big sister, to both her younger siblings.

what cute best buddies they are.
my girls are spaced exactly like rachel and i (2 years, 7 months). and they fight just as much. i'm hoping they will be better friends through their teen years than rachel and i were.
