Sister Love

One of the greatest joys of being a mom is watching my girls be sisters with each other. They seriously LIVE for one another. Nobody can make Macey belly laugh like Maddie does and no one can make Maddie instantly happy like Macey does. I know they loved each other before they came to this earth. It's almost as if their spirits remember each other somehow. They inherently know they are each other's sister and are fiercely protective of each other. If a cousin starts to be a little too rough with Macey, Maddie senses it from a completely different room. She comes tearing in there and saves her. If Maddie is sad about something, Macey crawls over to her and smiles and laughs at Maddie until they're both laughing and happy again. I love watching them and imagining little snapshots of time in the future - first days of school together, boyfriends, slumber parties, sister fights, etc. Our sweet girls are literally a piece of heaven in our home and we are so blessed to have them in our family.

Here are some fun pictures and videos of the girls...

Maddie is very careful to always include Macey in whatever she is doing, without any prodding from us. She has always been very concerned and considerate of her sister's feelings. Maddie loves to play with the Little People animals and line them up. This was a sweet moment one morning when Maddie kept handing animals to Macey to make sure Macey had one to play with too.

Maddie & Macey are extreme couponers in training. Look at Maddie's face ... she was super excited when her Macey was finally big enough to graduate from her car seat to actually being able to sit up in the front.  

:) Oh my goodness. Is there a word to describe moments like this?

These are older videos from when Macey was just a few months old.

Here are those Maddie-induced belly laughs I was talking about...

Stay tuned for more updates on our busy lives .... the ongoing renovations to our house, potty training, Halloween, fall photo shoots, and more :)

How sweet! I LOVE the picture of their faces turned toward each other. You need to display that proudly in your home :) I am so excited for your girls to have all the fun we had growing up together. They're already besties and I love how considerate they are of each other!

I just watched the belly laugh video and almost cried laughing. I love her laugh! They are so cute!
