Selah got a new cousin! On July 6, 2014 Blair’s older brother and sister in law welcomed Arie Norman Stretch into the world. He is the sweetest, smallest little squish I have ever seen. Compared to Selah he looks so tiny (although pictures do a poor job of conveying this).
Selah was SO amazing with him. She would put her arms out in front of her, like someone would carry a pile of wood, and make little noises as if to say ‘put him her’. When she held him, she would wrap her arms around him and wanted to pick him up and walk around with him. She leaned in and gave his head a kiss all on her own. We also tried to encourage her to ‘pet’ his head (he has so much beautiful hair) so she did that and kept it pretty gentle most of the time. If she wasn’t hugging him her arms would be mimicking ours as she supported his head. Ahh just typing it out makes my grin like a crazy person. I am so excited for Selah and Arie to grow up and become friends. I hope Selah continues to care for her little cousin just as she did during the first time they met.
