One of the kiddos favorite activities is wrestling with daddy. They tend to get a little rough- especially Xandra. But Matt loves it. And obviously the kids do, too.
These kids just adore their daddy! ... so do I :)
I love watching these two interact with each other. They already love each other so much. I had worried about Xandra before Milo came into our family. Having been the oldest in my family, and the only child for 7 years (!) before my brothers & sister came along, I knew first-hand how difficult it would be to give up all that attention. While we were kids, my siblings & I did not get along. At all. Ever. There was a lot of yelling, screaming, scratching, punching, & some blood-shed. It wasn't pretty. Thankfully, now that we're all adults, we get along so much better (no more hitting... at least not as hard!). So, I was worried about Xandra.
There was apparently no need to be. There is, of course, jealousy on both sides. They both want mom and/or dad's attention all the time. And if only one is getting it, the other will usually (loudly) protest. But these two can actually play together... & love to do so! I love watching them together. It makes all of the work to get Milo home so worth it. These two were meant to be siblings!
