warms my heart

As I sit here writing this - Mike is helping our 5 year old nephew get ready for bed. I love watching him help the little guy. They've been having fun this evening. I was running late for stamp club, and had to finish my "homework", so Mike had Blake for the evening. I was there, but not really, since I was doing my homework. Mike and Blake got Blake's room ready, made hot dogs (on the grill!) for dinner, and ate together at the kitchen table. It was nice for both of them. And fantastic for me to watch Uncle Mike and Blake eat, hang out, and communicate. Every so often Aunt Liz has to help interpret something, but other than that I pretty much left them on their own.

They went with me to stamp club (I was just going to drop off my homework, but the leader invited me to stay and work on the projects that club was doing tonight. So Blake was visiting with the other kids for a while. Then, Blake, Mike and the kids played Wii while I finished my last project. It was wonderful to see Mike and Blake "bowling" for the video game.

Mike put Blake to sleep tonight. Made sure he brushed his teeth, said his prayers, and read him a story. Now they are both about to go to sleep. They are both exhausted =)

I can't wait until it's our little one that Mike is helping to bed. I know he's going to be a great daddy!

Tomorrow Blake and I have a very busy day, but we are going to go see Uncle Mike and take him out to lunch for mexican food. It's going to be fun!
