A Special Uncle

Today, Desheng Darling called and sang “Happy Birthday” to a very special uncle. From the moment they met, he has always had a special place in her heart. I think she’s pretty special to him, too.

She doesn’t get to see him as often as she would like, but when they visit, they make the most of it. He eats endless pretend pizzas, pushes her in the swing when no one else will, carries her on his shoulders all the way down to the pond to skip rocks, makes really big bubbles with a special bubble wand he bought for her, and provides her with an infinite supply of M&M’s and toys. He even made a special trailer for her to ride in behind his lawn mower, and he never says no when she asks him to take her for a ride. She loves him very much. Hope you had a great birthday Uncle Al!

Great Picture! Isn't it great that not only do these little ones have the love of Mommy and Daddy, but extended family as well? Spicy Girl has a special bond with an older cousin, who is more like an aunt.

I'm trying to upload our Gotcha Day pictures from today, but blogger is having problems right now.
