Bradford and Opal Dean have truly reached a new level of friendship around here. Now that the little man is eating food, Opal has taken it as her role to help clean him up after every meal, which does include mainly her licking his hands. It is really cute to watch him hold out his hands for her and get so smiley when she comes up to him. Andy and I talked about how much we wanted Bradford and Opal to love each other before he was born and it makes me so happy that it’s come true. We often make Bradford a pallet to play on the floor with. Opal has decided that the pallet is also for her, and she spends a lot of time laying on the floor “protecting” Bradford, or rather just taking up space next to him.
