The boys are back in town

Roscoe's cousins Mack and Noah were in town this past weekend and the gang got to hang as a threesome for the very first time. Remember this, only 8 months ago?

At 3 1/2, Mack leads the pack. Roscoe and Noah are separated by just 6 months. I forgot (already) how special it feels to hold a new baby. Compared to Roscoe, Noah seemed so so tiny. His pronounced little features and sweet, calm demeanor reminded me in the nicest of ways that it's almost our turn, again.

After lunch and a soccer game, we camped out on the couch with the kiddos--toys strewn about, and cartoons humming in the background. In the company of his red haired cousin and aunt, Roscoe fit right in--convinced that dark would surely trump light, it's still crazy to me that I gave birth to such a fair complected child. But when the extended family is in the mix, it's pretty clear where his genes came from! Roscoe tested Mack's patience with his constant biting, pulling, and yanking. Mack was a good sport, but made it clear that he wouldn't be sitting next to Roscoe in any future photo ops.

Cool buddy and his momma

First fists of dirt. Later I got to fish out a slobbery twig.


Hey Noah!? You're cute!

Red/ish hair rules!

The afternoon was just a preview of the fun to be had later this summer, when we'll all be packing up and heading south for a week at the beach in Charleston, SC. There's so much to look forward to with these little guys in tow!


  1. Wow!! There are a bunch of red heads around here!! I love it!!

  2. Hey, Roscoe is starting to sport a little bit of a belly!! That's a very good sign--boys his age are supposed to have a gut like mine!!! :) Keep up the healthy eating, little buddy!

  3. Three little charmers! Love from Roscoe's GMA

  4. great to see a family playing and sharing. What fun lies ahead for everyone.

  5. I'm with you on the genetics! It's so cool the boys will be able to grow up so close in age!
