Something Special



My girls_ they are something_ something special
People often ask if they are twins_ they're not _ but close to it_ separated by only 19 months.
Sometimes I watch them_ mesmerized_ I stare at them
the way they finish each others sentences
how they laugh at each others silly little comments
the way 1 does for the other b/c she doesn't want the other to be upset.
they sleep by each other
they share clothes
they fix each others hair
youngest won't win a game just so oldest can get caught up
yes, they have something special_ even though they don't really "get it"
or know it to it's fullness now.
I imagine them being the best of friends when grown, living on their own, having each their own families_ but still having that forever bond.
Coming from a small family having only 1 brother_5 years between us_ and being closer when we were younger. Years have passed_ and distance has been put between us by miles_ and so by life.
How I wish I had a sister that had gone through lifes struggles and lifes greatest rewards with me_ that sister I could call anytime of day or night.... I don't_ but they do.
And that puts a big smile across this mommas face.
My girls_ they are something_ something special_ they are sisters.

  7. I love this post Heather! I am one of 3 girls, close in age and growing up it was hard not to bicker and fight so I really appreciate seeing sisters love each other so dearly! Funny how now I am "grown up" and my sisters are my bffs! Your girls are beautiful!

  9. My sisters are my BEST friends!!! It is such a special/strong bond. They just get me. When you find people like that who love you no matter what, you hold on to them! Lucky {blessed} for me they are my sisters. my two girls are 2 1/2 yrs apart. Can't wait to watch them grow up together. Your girls are so, so cute. And seriously did you ALL end up with gorgeous, thick hair? sheesh.

  12. My first time visiting you, what a gorgeous blog! I just LOVE that picture in your header holding all of the snapshots with everyone's names on it. Too cool, I'll be pinning it. :)

    What an absolutely lovely post! Wow, 19 months apart that is really something. It's perfect that they are best friends for one another. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! She is a lovely little baby and I am trying to soak her up as much as possible. And perhaps a few too many picture of her already. Oh well, I can live with that. :)

    Have a great week!
