Dreamin’ of Boys

in the motherly sense that is.

Exciting news on the homefront, Zach got a computer just for work, so hotflawedmama finally has her own computer at home. I know, I know, hold your applause-very exciting stuff.

Anyway, with that comes great responsibility and by “responsibility” I mean backing things up on a portable hard drive and fun things like that.

So that’s what I’ve been doing. Capturing my some millions of photos on a portable hard drive. And do you know what I found? The transition of Trysten and Tariku from “buddies” to “brothers”, and what a beautiful transition it is!

Thus, I’m dreamin’ of boys today. I wonder if our next adoption will consist of boys or girls or a combination of both. I see my husband with his brothers and I can almost feel that ache for my boys, my hubby and his bros are so close and have so much fun together.

Then I see my brother who clung to almost every boyfriend I had growing up, looking for his future brother. When meeting Zach something clicked and, I like to think, Marcus found the brother he had always wanted and Zach found the brother he never knew he wanted.

But I want my boys to have that. Probably to make up for my poor brother who had to endlessly be put through make up trials and such with me. Who only 8 years ago found a “real” brother. Since you all know I have a weak spot for my little brother, perhaps that’s why I’m overcompensating, I don’t know.

All I know is, you can’t fake love like this.


Early 2009 (P.S. I have no idea why Tariku has no gloves on nor why his hat sits atop his head rather than over his ears, call it “personal style”, if you will).

Late 2009

  1. Too cute! Don't forget sweet little D will be wanting a sister :). Exciting stuff Tesi, I can't wait to hear more on the adoption front!! Boys are a lot of fun that's for sure. I hope mine grow up to be close. So far, so good!Chandra

  2. Hi Tesi! This is my first stop at your blog (I'm doing a 365 blog project) and I loved the photos of your children. Their personalities show in their faces. Here's to a happy 2010 for you and yours!

  3. So sweet. And don't worry about the hat and gloves. My children habitually refuse to wear either, which can be a tad embarrassing when others spot you, like you are crazy mom who lets her kids freeze in the bitter cold. And of course, I love, love, love boys- a bit biased.

I LOVE hearing from you!
