Brothers... Day 410 27DEC09

After all is said and done Joshua and Jarrod love each other. Sure they squabble and bicker over toys/food/candy/window seats/friends/pecking order/chain of command/the last pack of Kool-Aid/etc... But there are plenty of moments where Renee and I smile and watch fondly as they help each other or do something together.

Today was another non-eventful day just the way we like it. Renee and Jarrod went to church this morning, Joshua played with Taylor and Avery, and I puttered about the house. For our afternoon entertainment we hosted 3 more kids besides our own for a grand total of 5. They were great and everybody played nice and had fun. Jarrod's friend D.J. stayed for sushi Sunday before he went home. It is great that Jarrod now has someone to hang out with in our neighborhood.

Tomorrow is back to the clinic for counts and then back home for school work. We are expecting Joshua's numbers to have stayed in the green as we slide into next year. It would make for a smooth transition into 2010.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I love hearing it's routine and normal - can't get enough of that. And it beautiful to see the love between you and Jarrod.

I am delighted that Jarrod has a new buddy to hang out with.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. I'm crossing everything possible hoping that there is indeed smooth sailing into 2010.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
