Brotherly love...


Sometimes Mitch & Harry amaze me...

Some days they fight like cat and dog...

But other times they are so kind and loving to each other...

To give you an example I will tell you the story attached to the photo (above). Mitch still has some difficulties negotiating steep inclines and tends to avoid them. Anyway one day when we were in Canberra we went to a market. They had been so good sitting in their pram while Mummy & Auntie Jenn wandered about looking at craft and yummy food. By the time they got outside they really wanted to stretch their legs and so they were let out of their pram harnesses and took off to explore the world. Jenn's little girl Mikaylah was there too, but she was happy to play close-by. Anyway, Harry took off up a ramp next to where we were sitting - and Mitchell tried but fell over. He then called out to Harry - in words that I think only the two of them understood and Harry turned around, walked back down the ramp and held out his hand to Mitch. Then the two of them walked up and down the ramp hand in hand. Such a moment of utter sweetness...

Mitch & Harry I hope that you are always there for each other and that the obvious love you have never fades. When ever you need someone to help you through life you will have each other. Hold onto that, cherish it and never let it go.

with all my love,

Mummy

Is'nt that sweet? it's so enchanting when little ones do that sort of thing. I can't see Boof having another barbie for a while :D When they have baby I'll be staying at their place for a week or so to look after Jewel so maybe we could catch up then. Chris will have your number, just remind me again when it's nearer the date. My memory is terrible these days.
Jewel and the boys would have a lovely time playing.
She's due on aug.16 but , knowing her ,we're looking at the beginning of july..her bubs are 5 to 6 weeks early.
So good to hear that the boys are probably fine, must be a relief for you both. I've always felt blessed that all mine are healthy. Ill health is such a drain to contend with, let alone how limiting for them it would be.

Lisa, Tracy went into the royal women's last night with pre eclampsia. Baby is well. She's over 2lb and seems to be fine so far. They'll try to get her to 30 weeks.
I'll keep you informed.

Ahhh, a preview of things to come. A brotherly relationship with its own language and never-ending support!

Thanks Shelly,
That's what I hope will see both boys through the difficult times in their future - their bond.
Hugs,
Lisa
