Adopting a Brother

TJ met D pretty soon after moving into our new house.

That means Newbie would have been two.

Thunderer hasn’t known a day of D not being present.

They’ve adopted him as another big brother. It shows too, as they try to get his attention or otherwise interact with him.

His mother used to babysit some, so he’s used to smaller kids, even if he is the baby of his family.

Now I think, based on the picture, he’s ready to head home, but does humor Redflare with a picture first… that Newbie had to photobomb.


Meeting of the Generations

After the zoo we went to visit Grandmother. Their only living great-grandparent.

She was fairly aware at the time, remembering me, so that helped make the visit go smoothly and well.

Thunderer just wanted to bring her random objects and have Grandmother share stories about them. What’s nice is that she didn’t seem to notice Thunderer kept bringing her the same things.

It was a precious encounter. I’m thankful that we were able to stop by.
