Recently, Liam had a surprise visitor from California. Spencer knew for several weeks that Liam's best friend was going to be flying in but kept it a secret from him until they met him at the airport. Spencer told me that if he's known it was to be a reunion such as theirs then he would have brought his video camera. You would have thought they had been seperated for years rather than a few months.
Long before Liam ever met JJ he knew of him from his grandparents and considered him his best friend. He would constantly speak of imaginary trips to California to visit his best friend.
Once he actually met JJ, they couldn't help but be fast friends. While JJ was here for a short visit, they got to spend several evenings of play together and to top it all off, we got to babysit him one night so Liam and he had a blast. Although JJ clearly displayed that he was the big brother in his family and Liam clearly showed that he was the only child. And we all know what that means. :)
Turns out JJ had never seen Star Wars (the originals) before, so Liam delighted in showing him his favorite episode (Return of the Jedi) and telling him ALL about it. Here they are on the couch, thick as thieves before they had to be seperated to go to sleep. They look almost as if they could be brothers.
