Look at this gorgeous pic of my two girls. I didn't really know what to expect when I had two girls, especially ones just 20 months apart. I only have brothers who are 10 and 7 years older and 12 years younger than me. So my daughters' world and relationship is completely foreign to me.
I'd seen the sisterly relationships others had and it was always pretty special. A built-in best friend, who you could share secrets and clothes with, giggle at bedtime with, gossip with, bicker with.
The relationship my two have has exceeded all my hopes a million fold. They simply adore each other. Sure they fight, they pinch and hair pull, they wrestle and screech, but most of the time they just want to be together. They drive me mad when they fight and I try to break it up as I usually get a: "Don't be mean to my sister!". They are at their happiest when they are together.
Every morning, when they wake they give each other the biggest hug – ready to start the day's adventures together. On the rare occasions when they're not together, they pine for each other. When they're reunited they have the most hilarious conversations: "How was the park?" "Good, how was swimming?" "Good, I saw my friends." "Oh wow! That's great"
I'm envious of their closeness, but it makes me so happy to know that for the rest of their lives they will have each other and are going to share so many moments together. I was reminded of this when I read BabyMac's gorgeous post about her sister.
I can't wait to see what their future holds together. A whole bundle of girly, twirly fun I'm sure!
