Everyone in our family has always said that Joseph is Dan all over again. It's a fact. The first photo is Dan when he was about five or six. The second photo is Joe at six:
See what I mean? I had nothing to do with Joe except as an incubation system. We have that photo of Dan in a frame in our living room. Everyone always thinks it's Joe. He is his father through and through. And not just in looks. He's a very charismatic, onery, funny person that everyone loves instantly. They are buddies because they understand each other so much better than the rest of us do. Daniel and I would have been bored silly over this last year without Joseph. Daniel and I are more serious. When we go shopping I can find Dan and Joseph anywhere in the store because I can hear them. Two kids, one big and one little, having a ball no matter where they go.
Joe gives me stuff to stick in Dan's packages when I send them. He sent a letter to his dad with a secret message in "code" in the last package:
Yesterday we got this email from Dan:
When we were reading it the boys were laughing hysterically. Even Joseph realized his "code" was pretty easy when he looked at it again and his dad was pulling his leg even from 3,101 miles away.
