On the way home from daycare Monday, I reminded Reid that I had told her that “Dylan’s mama, Melissa” (that’s what we call her to keep her separate from “Ben’s mama, Melissa”) was going to be having a baby and that the baby had safely arrived, was a boy baby -as Reid had predicted – and would be called, “Zachary Christopher.” Reid smiled and nodded happily at the thought of a new boy cousin. When we got home, there was an email from Uncle Chris with photos of Dylan’s new baby brother. Reid fell in love at first sight! I showed her both of the photos we received and then asked her to help me with supper. She was too busy caressing the top of the screen and staring at Zachary to budge. I agreed that she could hold the laptop and show her dad. Ken sat with her while she showed him the photos and then he, too, tried to persuade her to put the laptop away. Still, Reid stared. Ken declared it to be an obsession. Reid finally let go of the laptop. She is eagerly awaiting the next batch of photos, though. A photo of Zachary with Dylan would be just perfect from Reid’s perspective. (The only thing better would be one that managed to get Ben in with them as well.)
Love at first sight
