i walked into the kitchen today, and joel had put his husky dog into one of the booster seats and was reading a book to him. for those of you who don't know, joel's husky dog is his best friend and he doesn't go anywhere without "husky." usually having a stuffed animal that your child is so attached to, makes things a lot easier. he sleeps better with his dog, he calms down faster with his dog and that is when i love "husky." but sometimes, having "husky" makes things a whole lot harder. a few times, "husky" has been left at a store or at a family member's house, and, let me tell you, it is a sad scene to behold. if joel doesn't have "husky" when he's going to bed, he'll cry himself to sleep. on those occasions, i hate "husky." and i suppose this is to be expected, but kadin has formed an attachment equally as strong to his little "blue doggy." like brother, like... brother, i guess. i was just going through our photo library on our computer and was not surprised to find that in a huge portion of the photographs taken of each of the boys, their dogs are either in their arms or in the close proximity. here are some choice shots.
kadin: 10 months old
joel: 15 months old
kadin': 6 months old, please don't mind my double chin :)
joel: 5 months old, check out how beautiful and fluffy husky was back then
kadin: 7 months old
joel: 18 months old
kadin: 6 months old
joel: 21 months old
kadin: 4 months old
joel: 19 months old
this is a special one because both dogs are present :)
they sure are cute toting those little animals around all the time. i think it's safe to say that, for the most part, "husky" and "blue doggy" make life a whole lot easier and a whole lot funnier.
