Creed is in for a shock this summer because three of his close friends are moving away. The first to move is his best friend here, Jesse. I've never seen two little boys this age so attached to each other. Most of the time Creed is with other two-year-olds, playing together really means parallel play, where they are in the same space, but they are each doing their own thing. As soon as we arrived in Utah, Creed has loved Jesse and it amazes me watched them play together and be overjoyed to see each other.
This week we had a couple of play-dates with Jesse while his parents packed and cleaned. It surprised me to see Creed and Jesse doing the exact same things in so many of these pictures. I don't know how they understand each other so well.
Jesse has always called Creed, "Pew" and this week after playing with Jesse, Creed told me, "Mommy, me Pew!"
Today we got together one last time for a trip to the zoo. As we left Creed kept pointing to Jesse and saying, "Again! Again! Jesse Play!" and I explained that Jesse is getting on an airplane and going far away, he isn't going to live here anymore. Poor Creed broke down in tears. We are really going to miss this little guy.
