We had quite the treat this weekend.  My sister Erin, her husband Jonny and their son Kai came to our house to visit!

We had a lovely time sitting around in our jammies, taking the kids to see a music show, visiting OMSI, the local science museum, and celebrating my birthday with a fantastic breakfast.

But the really exciting part was watching the two cousins interact and even play together.  Cora has slowly been getting more comfortable around kids over the past couple of months, so I was looking forward to seeing how she'd do around Kai. The last several times they've traveled across the country to visit, Cora's response to Kai has has ranged from wary to terrified.

But this time around she warmed up pretty well.  They were able to play with the same toys and games on more than one occasion.  She even signed, "I love you" to her big cousin.  I can't wait for them to be able to spend more time together when we go up my parents' place for Christmas.

  1. Cora just keeps getting cuter and cuter! :)

  2. I like the pictures of the cousins with their good ol' uncle Nick ;-)


Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me!
