This weekend, Sunny and Kaki awoke early Sunday morning, but instead of waking me and James, they headed downstairs, fed the dogs, and entertained themselves with elaborate vacations to the beach (their make believe is a something to behold these days). Eventually they did emerge in our bedroom and Sunny greeted us with the following:
Sunny: Mommy. Daddy. Courtland and I have decided that we’d like you to have a baby. I would like a brother.
Kaki: Yeah. I want TWO babies. A brother AND a sister.
And while that’s a lovely request, James and I explained that it wasn’t quite that simple.
At the end of the day, the jury’s still out as to whether we’ll expand our family further. It’s pretty amazing to have two children that not only wipe their own butts (mostly) and sleep through the night (mostly), but who can entertain themselves and have family meetings and make requests for brothers and sisters. Looking at these photos of the two of them together it’s hard to imagine that I’ll ever want (or need) more than this.
But the thought of Courtland as a big sister is pretty dang heartwarming…
