Cousin Love

Eshaan. Aashrai. Asha. Charlotte

Nothing makes me more proud (and aged) than seeing my two nephews. Just yesterday they were chubby little buttons that fit in my arms. Now one of them can carry me around and the other one gives me advice on how to solve a rubik’s cube in 56 seconds. I state the obvious now but time flies! This weekend we are in Charlotte and I am basically on the verge of bursting with tears of happiness as I see the three of them playing together. The boys are watching out for sharp corners and wanting to carry her around everywhere. They are playing silly games to keep her entertained and also trying to make sure she knows how much she can get away with around adults. Β She can’t quite run as fast as them so they devised a plan to put her in the stroller and push her around the quiet suburban streets.
I am soaking in every moment. Going back to Chicago gets harder every time!
