Today was the birthday party for Baby E’s favorite person in the world, his cousin Ms.B.
Ms.B is three months younger than Baby E, and while they have picked on each other since the beginning, they absolutely adore each other. I often catch Baby E having conversations with an imaginary Ms.B and he includes her in many of his fantastical adventures. When he heard it was her birthday party, he got very excited 1- because it was for her, and 2- because there would be cake.
After our rough week, it was wonderful to watch the children playing with their cousins and having so much fun!
This evening each of the kids took turns giving me huge hugs. It’s sad to realize I went even a few days without their tiny arms around my neck. I’m so grateful to be feeling so much better.
