Ali-boo and Tristan too

A couple of weeks ago, Nate got the chance to spend some time with his cousins, Tristan and Alice.  Even though we don't get to see them very often (it's a six hour car ride and robot boy always refuses to nap during the drive), Nate's cousins are a big part of his life.  I don't think a day goes by where we don't talk about them.

Nate adores Tristan and I think the feeling is mutual. And Alice, the new baby on the block, is fun to look at - just as long as I'm not holding her. Even though Nate's seen me hold two other babies recently, he flipped out every time I picked up Ali. I don't generally laugh at Nate when he cries, but it was hard to keep a straight face when the switch was flipped and the green eyed monster cried actual tears and wanted me to hold him immediately.

When we do get to see them in person, Nate and Tristan always seem to quickly fall into a groove playing. Occasionally there's a sharing issue, but for the most part they play sweetly with lots of enthusiasm. Tower building, cooking in the kitchen and running like maniacs outside seem to be the favorite activities.
