The past few months we've had the privilege of getting to know this sweetheart of a girl Lina, or "Nina" as Brooks would say. She lives in Germany, but thanks to the internet the distance between us has been made much smaller. We've had her over to our house many many times, well, through Skype that is. ;) But someday we will meet in person!
Lina has become like a sister to me! We've shared and discussed such heart-felt feelings and experiences...and she makes me want to be a better person.
Brooks absolutely adores her!! He'll point to the laptop and say, "Nina! Nina!" And he gets giddy when I tell him we get to "see" her through Skype. One day he shared his peanut butter and jelly sandwich with her through the screen. :) And, as you can see in the pictures, the other day he shared his cheerios with her, then wanted to give her kisses. Lina was so sweet to humor him and chomp on the imaginary cheerios and she gave him plenty of kisses back. :) I laugh every time I look at these images, and it makes my heart smile thinking of what a sweet friendship this has become.
