Lucas age 3, 2009
Caden age 3, 2011
 This is just how much of a nerd I am... I dressed both my boys in the same outfit for their first days of preschool.  Yes, I know.  Nerdy motherhood at its finest.  But it gives me a perma grin that I am totally not ashamed of.  I do it because it is cute and I love matching clothes, but also just so I can do posts like this.  Putting these pics side by side brings a continuity to my life is some way.  I love that they are at the same preschool, playing with the same toys and being nurtured by the same teachers.  I love that Caden has Lucas to look up to and that Lucas loves to share his knowledge of this school and his teachers with his younger brother.  I love that sparkle in Caden's eye when he realizes that he is now getting to do all those things he watched with envy as Lucas got to do at school.  And it brings an unspeakable warmth to my soul to listen to Lucas ask Caden about his day and if he got a book from the library or played at the water table.  They are sharing life together and I absolutely love it!  They adore each other.  I mean, they fight.  But they truly are each other's best friend and I hope it stays that way forever. 
But really, I just love it when they match.  :)  I hope this makes you smile a little too. 
Lucas loved the farmhouse and all the animals.  It was an immediate favorite.

Ahh, a child after my own heart. I'd be eating sprinkles on my ice cream like Lucas!

Love you!

Love this! What a great idea! I wouldn't have the presence of mind to remember to even look at photos to be reminded of what I need to remember. ;-)

Also, I have to tell you that LB drew a family picture in preschool this week, and of course, she asked her teacher if it was okay to include Susie in the picture. She thanks Jesus for her sister every night in her prayers. Makes this Mama's heart melt. :-)

Oh, I would do the same thing...if my kids were anywhere close to the same size clothes at the same age!
