My Cousin, My Friend

Staley and her cousin, Liam, were born on the same day.  Birthday twins!!  Staley loves all her cousins and all her friends, but she and Liam have a special bond.  Of all the kids Staley plays with right now, she and Liam play the best together.  Not just side-by-side playing, but actually playing together. They share toys, mimic one another, chase each other around, hold hands, and have inside jokes that always make them laugh.  Their favorite joke:

Staley:  "Liam, what does Animal [from the Muppets] say?"
Liam:  "Rar-rar-rar...drum!"
Cue Staley laughing hysterically.
Repeat.

I love watching Staley and Liam play together.  Since Liam's mom also works part-time, we try to make time to get the cousins together to play on a regular basis.  With my maternity leave and the nice weather, this summer has given us lots of fun opportunities to spend time with Liam and Aunt Melissa.

I hope that Staley and Liam continue to hold onto this friendship as they grow up.  There is nothing better than having a best friend.  And having a best friend who is also your family...well, nothing can compete with that!!

Cousins make the best friends!!
