6 years ago, first meeting

I met my husband sometime around this month, 6 years ago. This is a picture when he first met Sidra at that time. Actually Sidra is not that easily get attached to people when he just first meets them, so I was quite surprised that he sat on my husband’s lap rightaway and began inspecting my husband’s teeth (kids are weird, you know). I guess he picked up my body language or something. He was also very impressed with my husband’s adam’s apple and talked about it for several days afterward. FYI it is not that impressive!

This is the two love of my life last weekend:

Several days ago Sidra said to my husband: “Sometimes I think that you were just a stranger before and now I call you Papa and I can sit on your lap and ask you things and we live together everyday. Isn’t that awesome??”

    This is so sweet, however let it be known that I did NOT get all teary, it was just coincidental that a bit of dust got in my eyes at that precise moment, honest…

    Jokes aside, I really enjoy the blog and the little glimpses into your family life are like a little bit of sunshine for me :)

      Sometimes we feel like we’ve known each other our whole life too, and then realized that it has only been 6 years. But for Sidra it is more than half of his life!
