Rain, Rain, Go Away

For the past 2 Mondays, it has rained quite a bit. And while I know this may not seem like that big of a deal to some people, it is here in South Carolina. The rainy days are pretty few and far between so we get spoiled here with the nice weather. The kids and I had someplace to go on both Mondays so we couldn't just stay in and keep warm.

Yesterday was pretty bad and it was pouring down. After Katie, Michael and I all got soaked, we headed home. The rest of the day was spent enjoying indoor activities. Michael and I played trains while Katie watched us from her Bumbo. Later in the afternoon after she woke up from her nap, Michael built a huge block tower and Katie practiced her sitting skills.

The relationship between Katie and Michael is really developing. It's so neat to see them interact and Katie is so entertained by her older brother. And he really loves to make Katie laugh. And these times give me a glimpse as to what is to come. I can see that there will be a day in the near future when the two of them will play together and I can just stand back and observe.

Here is a picture of the tower that Michael built while Katie watches him:

I'm starting to see glimpses of the playing together, and it really is sweet. I could listen to the giggles all day. You have cute kids!

Was this before or after he bonked her on the head with the camera?

I loved reading about their relationship. It reminds me so much of Zoey and Ford. They truly are best friends.
