Family, Kids

The Little Cousins

In my family there is an age gap of 15 years between my eldest brother and my youngest sister. Growing up we were spaced out and that translated into many years of grandchildren for my parents and now my mom.

My younger sister Molly and I have birthed a little tribe of children and it’s always an adventure when we get together. This week Molly and her three children came over to meet Amelia. They all wanted to hold her while she was still so small and new.  That meant that we had a very fun and excited group of 7 kiddos. Aged the following ( 5 days, 10 months, 2 years, 3 years , 4 years, 5 years, and 7 years).

The day was fun, sweaty, loud, filled with play, dirt, injury and lots of cousin love.

They played hard until then sun went down and way past tired boundaries. Leeland kept getting hurt every 10 minutes and we ended the day with a text to Aunt Laura to ask about signs of a concussion. We were in the clear but boy do boys play hard.

Funny things:

  • Leeland said,” oh cute! Now Henry has a baby friend!”

  • Watching Leeland Henry and Peter all sit around Amelia

  • Anne wore her dress that Grandma Wilken made and soon all three of the girls came down in their matching dresses.
