Ode to Brit

Max and Brit at a recent trip to Fall Fest at the zoo!
Sam, Max and I added another to our family a little more than a year ago. :)

Brit, Sam's cousin, moved in with us summer of 2010 and what was supposed to be a summer housing arranging before heading back to OSU for her final year, turned into something much more. She is now a college grad and has a full-time job, with a very long and important title. Oh ya, and still lives with us much to our delight.

Sam and I have enjoyed Brit's company and friendship, and Max has enjoyed the joys of having a "big sister." 

One of my favorite things about Brit is her love and adoration towards our little man. She shares such a unique relationship with him and I can't imagine Max not having her a part of his little life. (In all honesty, does he really remember what life was like pre-Brit? Probably not! He had just turned 2 when she moved in.) 

I love their banter. For instance, this is an actual quote I had to say while out driving the gang:
"Max stop kicking Brit's seat, Brit please turn around and stop swatting his foot away!" 

Now if that isn't true sibling rivalry, I don't know what is! 

However, what I (and Maximus!) love most about Brit is her creativity and passion for trying, finding and having new adventures with Max. She is not content to just sit at home and do the norm with him (can I get an Amen! from those that also know and love Brit.) 

Her latest and greatest adventure: Giving Max an entire can of shaving cream in the bathtub. He was COVERED head to toe and I am sure having the time of his life. The next morning, he told me all about it with strict instructions that, "we need to go to the store and get more of that stuff so I can do it every night!" 

Oh what fun! 
Guess what Brit? I LOVE you!
Dear Brit,
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Thank you for investing your love and time into our sweet and precious little boy. We can't think of a better role model, friend or sister for Maximus. We trust you implicitly and are grateful for all the little moments that you make special. These are going to be life-long impressions and memories for Max! Thank you!!

Sam and Jen
