Best Buddies

Today, Lilly and Reid were sitting next to each other playing and Lilly looked over at Reid and said, "Love you Bubby!". He, in return, looked at her and said, "Wuv you!" It was a moment that froze me in my tracks, touched the deepest parts of my heart, and just melted me to a teary-eyed mommy. It was the first time that I had witnessed these two, with no prompting from me (I was cleaning up around them not at all involved in their playtime) tell one another that they did, indeed, love one another. It is actually one of my most passionate prayers to the Lord--that they will be best friends, show kindness to one another, be quick to forgive one another, be spiritual leaders to one another, lean on one another, etc. That they will have a close relationship. Even as they grow up. That way more often than not--they remain sweet to each other.

Thus far, (and I believe in the years to come as well) God has answered this prayer. Today's conversation between the two is just a hint of proof. They really do love being together and doing things together.

On the mornings (or afternoons) when Reid wakes up before Lilly, he just keeps saying, "I want yill-yee". She, too, asks for him if she wakes up before him. If she gets one of something, she always asks for one for Reid too.

This was at their friends 1st birthday swimming party. They got pizza and curled up in the same chair together and just hung out.

There latest thing is to say to one another, "I need a hug!"

And then--they hug!

One of the greatest joys of my life is watching my children love on one another and look after one another. I know that sounds a little cliche or corny...but it is the God's honest truth. It is one of the sweetest things! Lord, I pray that they continue to love each other, enjoy doing things together, and remain the closest of friends!
