A twin for Jack

As a stay-at-home mom, I've been lucky to have been entrusted with extra kids from time to time. When Alexander was about 16 months old, I watched our good friend Alex a few days a week for a few months. A few months later, I started watching another good friend, Ava, a few days a week for about a year. I loved having the extra kid around because it gave Alexander a playmate and someone to practice sharing with. I always found it a little strange, though, that when I would take the kids out (either pair), people would assume they were twins. Besides the fact that these are all Caucasian kids of approximately the same age, they really look nothing alike!

So, if people thought those kids were twins, people are really going to think that Jack and Piper are twins! Piper is my friend Melissa's daughter, who I will be watching from time to time this summer, and possibly more frequently come fall. I'm excited for Jack to have a playmate close to his own age, as Piper is just 3 months older than him. By the way, Happy Birthday again, Piper!

awww, look at those three cute kids ; ) Alexander and Jack look like twins separated by a few years! I'd love to see a pic of Pip and Jack side-by-side in the stroller. Piper said she cant wait to come play again now that she is fully back to her happy self (she's even saying the word happy now!)
