Sister Sister: An Update on the Girls

Thursday, October 19, 2017

I can't believe I have an almost four year old and a 15 month old. Two daughters. Two little girls who are alike in some ways and oh-so-different in others. 

I thought I'd share a little update on each of the girls, survey style, since time is flying by at a speed I can't quite wrap my brain around. But first, an update on sisters.

It's the coolest thing to see C and H growing into their roles as sisters. C as big sister, and H as little sister, with all that each of those titles entails. Yes, C is somewhat "typical" when it comes to being the older child: she likes some semblance of order and can get pretty miffed when H comes charging in like Babyzilla (if you've seen her in action in real life, you know!). But she's gotten good at dissolving frustration into a fit of giggles while proclaiming "She's just the silliest, mom! She's a rascal-y girl!" I can't help but laugh, too. 

And H also embraces her role as youngest by testing her sister every chance she gets. She likes to take toys and watch C for her reaction. But, man, does she adore her big sis. The first thing she does when she sees her is lean in for a hug. 

They really adore each other. They are at ages now where they are starting to play together instead of separately or side-by-side. They make each other laugh -- sometimes over the silliest things -- and Steve and I just look at each other, like we're on the outside of some inside joke. I pray each and every day that their bond just continues to grow and strengthen. I think they're off to a pretty great start. :)

Carrington, 3 years 11 months

Carrie is nearing her FOURTH birthday, and though I can hardly believe it, it shows. She attends preschool three mornings a week this year and jumped back into the swing of things without a hiccup. She has and shares pretty complex thoughts and asks a lot of good questions.

WANTS TO BE: A doctor, a mommy, and the other day she told me a firewoman

Hadley, 15 months

Hadley is equal parts snuggly and spitfire, runs wherever she goes, loves to eat, and has the sweetest little heart. She is SO active!

It sounds cheesy, but I look at these two girls every day and feel so very grateful that they are here, that this is my life. I am living my greatest dream each and every day, through all of the challenging and tiring and amazing. 


  1. I love seeing the comparisons. Sooo cute. I need to do one of these too since my girls will be 3 in a couple of months.

    1. Ahhh! Three is so much fun. I want to do a post all on its own about the hilarious stuff they say at this age so I don't forget!
