A New Friend

We have a new friend that shows up at our house once a week. Aedric is a little boy from church that we now babysit every Thursday. He is just a month older than Joel but he's almost the size of Samuel! Here we are hanging around the house:

I love that picture of Joel all wide-eyed. How cute! And Samuel seems so happy all the time. He reminds me of Meredith!

Whoa, Leah...is that actually a photo of you "slinging" someone else's kid? You are one giving momma! I don't even have the motivation to wear my own baby (well, the first nine months ,but I can barely even stand that). You can imagine what a stretch it would be for me to put on someone else's child for a while! Aelic's family is really fortunate to have you and Ed and your boys caring for their little guy once a week.

p.s. I told your mom this and I've been meaning to mention it here on your blog. When you post photos of Joel, I think he resembles my Asher. They have similar coloring or hair line or features or something. It might not be the case if they were together in person, but there's something about the way they look in photos. I'll e-mail you one of Asher sometime and see if you see it...

Oops! In that last comment, I mean Aedric's family is fortunate to have you...not "Aelic's" family. Not sure where I came up with that!

Seeing that last photo of you slinging a baby jogged my mind that you are the slingin' expert and I need to be asking you how to sling twins - help!!

Jen,
I can see the similarities! Asher's face is a little longer than Joel's chubby one, but they have very similar eyes, nose & mouth - how cute!

Krista,
Oh, boy, I've only seen slung twins in pics on the internet. I'll do some research for you and let you know what I come up with. Eek, twins!! :)
