Last week I talked about the special bond Leo and Eli have. But I felt like I also needed to include Evie in the Leo love. She is incredibly sweet with him and has her own connection with our pup. She greets him first thing when she walks into the door from school. In a high pitched voice she’ll say things like, “Oh Leo! You’re such a goooooood boy!”. She has him sit and shake and stay, and he is learning to listen to her. She reminds us that he is still just a puppy when he does things he shouldn’t. She calls him up on her bed at night and always tells me she wishes he would sleep with her. Maybe someday he’ll give up our bed for hers (which my husband prays for daily).
I’ve told several people how the kids have seemed to have bonded a bit more with Leo than they did with Rusty. Maybe it’s because Rusty was already with us when each of them were born. He was already a fixture in our home. But with Leo they had such an active part in choosing him and welcoming him into our family. Nothing makes me happier than knowing they will all grow up together.
So this week I leave you with a few photos of Evie and her pup. Can you handle the sweetness?
