I have a brother myself, but I’m definitely used to having more girls around, since I do have two sisters.  And fittingly, the Captain now has three little girls of his own – after growing up with three sisters.

So, I kind of find it hard to believe sometimes that I have two sons now.

I wonder what kind of relationship they will have as they grow up.  There are 4 and a half years between them, but with Tad’s developmental delays, who knows how far apart they will be in ability.  I wonder if Rerun will have the same issues as his brother, or will he be more like Ane?  I wonder if they can love each other without being too violent.

All I know for sure is, with two boys in the house… eventually, we will never have leftovers again.  And our grocery bills will be huge.  And I will do a lot of laundry.  And I should probably learn from Grandma how to properly patch the holes in jeans.

    ….and sometimes you will not want to sit on the toilet seat in your own house.

    Rerun’s little hands are so busy, and Tad’s are being so careful!
    You will have more dirt in the house, and louder voices and music.

    Here is a hopeful note. When my sister’s 9 1/2 yr.old grandson visits and I have jr. church, he and a boy who is 5 play very well together. I don’t mean to say you have to wait that long for it to happen!
