I have a big surprise. Guess who came to visit? My sister Claudia is here in hot and humid Florida to meet Little Buddy, well also to see all of us to of course. There is nothing quite as wonderful as hugging your loving sister. The sibling that fits perfectly into your embrace and hugs you even harder back. As you know I have one missing sister who chooses not to be a part of the family, so that makes my dear Claudia even more special.
Even though Little Buddy did not feel well yesterday, and did not show us his best side, he met his Aunt Claudie and they are now pretty inseparable. He adores her, and well we know the feeling is definitely mutual.
Not to be outdone, Max reminded Aunt Claudie that she was his Aunt first. He LOVES her and always has. He cried and cried when she came down the stairs yesterday morning. Claudia arrived late on Wednesday and Max was already asleep. She has two boys vying for her attention.
We will have more photos later, but these were pretty good considering Little Buddy felt awful yesterday and just could not tell us what was wrong.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments and concern about Mr. 21. He healed up beautifully physically and by the time he returned to Ohio it just looked like he had not slept well in a few days, sort of like he had dark circles under his eyes but they were really bruises that were still trying to disappear. The swelling went down quickly and frankly I think he enjoyed telling the story to all of his buddies, boys are strange that way. He seems okay mentally and emotionally about the situation so I am keeping my fingers crossed he stays that way. Funny how many people he has heard about that the same thing has happened to them. It is a crazy world out there.
Claudia and I are off for an adventure, see you soon.
