jack and his friend emery are exactly one week apart. they're like two little peas in a pod, except for the fact that one is a girl and one is a boy. same height, same hatred for nursery, same love of pushing mini strollers and shopping carts. i love to watch them play together -- sometimes they'll stop what they're doing, stare at each other for a second, then burst out laughing. i wish i could get in on their jokes.
