I joked with Sarah yesterday that, if Asher and Ivy do marry someday, they might be the first couple that people have been able to watch grow up from the very beginning.
Their friendship is natural, but hasn't always been the kindest (on Ivy's part) (she can be a bit bossy) however as they are growing older they have truly become pals. They ran along next to each other at the park, arms brushing up against one another until they were holding hands, without much thought... later Asher introduced her to someone "this is my best friend Ivy" and it about melted us to the floor.
We could watch them discover and learn and be sweet forever.
And I kinda hope we do.
