One of the perks of spending the Fourth at my sister’s place is that we can cut Dao loose. In fact, it’s the other way around. As soon as Dao saw Eric, he cut us loose. Dao loved to play with his big cousin and he copied everything Eric did. They jumped up and down the bed, chased each other around the house or watched Curious George together. Although five years apart, Dao and Eric played well together. Dao looked up to Eric and Eric liked to show things to Dao. Eric was also very good at being gentle to his little cousin. I am so glad to see the bond between the two of them.
