Every time I think I have my favorite moment of the week pegged, something better happens. Not a bad thing, eh?
Nico is really starting to interact with us now. I love it. This week he started calling Mikey by name, or at least as close to his name as he could get with his little rosebud mouth. “KeyKey! KeyKey! KEYKEY!” I hate to be all “mom blog” on you, but it is just the sweetest thing.
And then! Today! Oh my goodness the cuteness just went positively overboard! For the first time ever, Nico offered Mikey a hug. Mikey “hugs” [choke holds] Nico all the time. Nico always pushes him away. But today he went up to KeyKey with open arms and then snuggled into Mikey’s chest like a little koala bear, smiled, and closed his eyes while he patted Mikey’s back! GAH! Can you stand it? Is that not the cutest flipping thing ever? To see two little dudes [3′ tall and 2’6″ tall] loving it up made me positively burst with happiness [and laughter].
Mikey was beside himself. He’s a hugger so this was especially exciting for him (we had issues during school where he had to be told he can’t hug everyone, and he must ask first).
So there they are, rocking back and forth in a big hug and Mikey looks at me over Nico’s head with a huge smile on his face and says,
“Mama, look! We’re married.”
It’s all so damn sweet my teeth hurt.
