She Looks Like a Five Year Old

Östen is 4. Östen loves a girl. He has loved her his whole life. Yes, his entire life. That's what he'll tell you. Her name is Maren and he left her in Nashville, TN when we moved 4 years ago. It doesn't matter to him that she lives so far away, he still thinks that she painted his "beautiful moon."

Today two of Tyler's friends were helping him paint in our basement. I was chatting with them about life and love when Östen chimed in, "I have a girlfriend." I think he felt cool, like the guys were really impressed. As he ran to get a picture of her to show them he stopped at the top of the stairs and said with a sweet grin, "She's 4, but she really looks like a 5 year old!"
