This past weekend was low-key as Roman was sick, but the weekend before that was a lot of fun. We had a little pool party with Roman and his best buddy, Aden. Aden is my sister’s baby. He is one-year-old like Roman, in fact they are just a couple of months apart. Watching Roman play with another baby is the sweetest thing. It’s amazing to witness how “naturally” they just interact. Even at such a young age, they innately enjoy one another’s company and even know how to share. The only thing cuter than one sweet, little boy is two sweet, little boys.

This little get together was also a big deal to us because it was the first time that we had people over to enjoy our yard with us. As I’ve written (here and here), it’s been one heck of a journey. To finally be able to sit back there and enjoy it is really a long-time dream come true.

I mean seriously, are these boys the sweetest — or what? I hope that you are having a lovely week. I’m still climbing out from beneath the mess my life became during hell week last week — but I’m getting there! xo

    It’s so good that Roman has a cousin close in age to him! My sister had her daughter 8 days after I had Reagan, so they’re super close in age and it’s so great that she always has someone to play with at family events & whatnot. 🙂

    Your backyard is looking gorgeous!

      Thanks, Kay. It’s really great that Roman has his cousin and I love that Reagan has the same. There is such a special bond between them.

      It really is the sweetest thing — it’s like this whole other side of their personalities comes out!

    Cousins are the greatest. 🙂 Love Roman’s swim gear, BTW.
