Brady and I went to visit Clare and Teresa last week - only a hop, skip and an hour ride and we were there! Big brother Jamie was so helpful, asking if he could give a toy to Brady and sat with him (at one point sat in front of Clare!) and little two-month Simon was a cute little bug, hamming it up with his smiles.
Two-year old Clare was so adorable - not shy whatsoever as she reached out to me so she could walk over. I got hugs and kisses and big smiles; and words that were as clear as day - "bubble", "baby" , "Brady". She was on fire! She scooted right up to Brady and they seemed to gaze at each other, connect in some quiet way. Teresa posted some great pics on her blog, but here is my favorite, on the bottom left. Kinda tells it like it is! She's certainly giving him a good talking too! :) I'm glad to see he's paying attention to the women in his life!
It was so great to hook up, Teresa and Shawn were so hospitable and we had a fabulous lunch. It was reassuring for me to meet Clare and see Brady isn't as far behind as I keep thinking he is. I need to readjust my thoughts on his accomplishments. I know we'll see each other again soon, and I look forward to it.
