M and K have been sisters for a little over 15 months now.
Sometimes, they are the best of friends.
Other times, they are screaming at each other and playing tug-of-war with whatever object they are vying for.
M provides K with endless entertainment and inspiration.
K is that little sister that wants to do every thing and any thing her sister does.
M still doesn’t understand her own strength and often thinks K is just another playmate like her preschool friends. There are times where I fear M will hurt K for being too rough. However, K LOVES the attention and hardly ever shows she’s hurt if she gets knocked down by M. It’s as if she doesn’t want to ruin the moment by crying or getting hurt. She just wants to play with her big sister.
K as perfected the art of teasing her sister. She loves to grab something that M wants to play with, run up to M, and just when M tries to take the object, K will sprint as far away as she can from her sister. M doesn’t always find it amusing, but I have to give that girl some credit for the amount of patience she has for her little sister.
M has cried on occasion due to K being a little too rough or fiesty with her. It doesn’t happen too often, but when it does, it breaks my heart a little. M has tremendous patience for K, so when she finally breaks down and cries, I know she’s hit her limit.
K’s vocabulary is growing exponentially with help from her big sister. She loves to copy whatever M says and we are constantly surprised whenever we hear her successfully repeat a word.
Overall, life with two girls is just fun. No sarcasm. It really is fun. I love watching their relationship grow. I love watching them play. I love watching them laugh. I love watching them hug.
