BESTIES / by Micaela

I think it's safe to say that Roan officially has his first best friend, his classmate Suraiya.  Today is Suraiya's third birthday.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY SURAIYA!!!

I would like to think that his best friend is a girl thanks to Lula and the fact that he shared the womb with a little girl.  Perhaps he will always want to have the good influence of a female companion  around because of Lu.  However, in reality I think he found the prettiest girl in class and discovered she was every bit as rambunctious as him and that was that.  These two are partners in crime.  Let's just say that Tasneem (Suraiya's mom) and I are no longer letting them go unescorted into another room and leave it at that.

They ask after each other every day and look for each other first when going to the playground.  Last night I got a text from Tasneem that said "Suraiya just said she loves Roan.  Let's just plan the wedding now".  SO CUTE!  Although I think they are a bit more Bonnie and Clyde than Wills and Kate.

Here's Suraiya.  I know, right? 

Monkey see monkey do

Free music and hula hooping

Don't ask


Suraiya sat here and Roan kept bringing her things to eat

There's a lot of snacking with these two

First and last time they had chocolate ice cream cones before bedtime

They are pretty much always right next to each other

Even with other kids around (with Oliver and Nico)

My guitar for your bubbles?

Note the matching gold sandals
