Our Children

There is a little song from the musical Ragtime that I've always been fond of called "Our Children" of two (separate) parents commenting on the friendship their son and daughter are cultivating.  I've always found it to be a sweet little tune, but there is one line that particularly stands out to me these days where they say, " like me and one like you, our children."

Because from the moment she was born, she clearly looked like me.  Elliot doesn't resemble Grant much when you compare baby pictures, but there is a LOT of resemblance when they are near each other.  I also think there is a strong family resemblance when you see Elliot with the sons of Grant's brothers.

So when we have pictures like this...'s pretty easy for me to get misty-eyed when I see our very own children.  One like me and one like Grant.  They are pretty awesome little people.

Not that it's all that difficult for me to get all misty-eyed in general, especially these days.

But I really, really, really love seeing our children together.
