K adores M. There are times when K just watches whatever M is doing. She just observes her big sisters actions. Then suddenly, she’s trying to do the same thing.
It could be a small action. M was touching her tooth one morning. K was just observing. Suddenly, K starts touching her touching her tooth in the exact same way M was.
It could be big actions. M was jumping around and dancing to a song on the television. Without any hesitation, K got up, jumped and danced around like her sister.
K learned how to ‘freeze dance’ just by playing with her sister. We use the songs already loaded on our electronic keyboard. When I turn the volume all the way down, the dancers freeze. When the music comes back up, they dance. It’s so funny watching the girls ‘freeze dance’ because K usually follows whatever frozen pose M finds herself in. It’s very cute.
That picture above? That’s at Costco. M was leaning forward and kicking the shopping card behind her. It took K awhile to figure out how to drape herself over the cart handle. I had to show her to put her arms over to prevent her from hitting her head on the cart. However, once she got it, she was trying her best to get her little feet and legs to reach that back of the cart like her sister.
Gotta love little sisters!
First off, I can’t believe those are my kids! When did they get so old?
Secondly, when did I start dressing them all ‘matchy matchy?’ That was totally unintentional. (Confession: I ended up wearing a heather gray top that day too. It was completely coincidental.)
I can’t get over how sweet this picture is. We were about to leave to run some errands. I was gathering things to take out the door with me. K decided to distract herself with the iPad.
I was just about to tell them to go, when I witnessed this.
M was helping K with the ‘Alphabet with Elmo’ app. It’s currently K’s favorite. She loves the letters and loves the little videos that correspond to each letter. It’s a bit advanced for her because the app requires the child to trace the letter before unlocking the video. K tries her best, but at 18months, it’s not good enough to unlock the videos.
Big sister, M, to the rescue!
I love watching them work together. I love that they can share (sometimes!).
I just had to snap the picture and capture the moment before getting them out the door for the day.
It really is those small moments that make me so happy!
I watch my girls when they sleep.
No, not creepy.
I watch my girls when they sleep.
I look at them, and I can’t believe they are mine.
I look at them, and I can’t believe they were in me.
I look at them, and I can’t believe I made them (with Hubby’s help.)
I look at them, and I can’t believe that I’m a mother.
They are so peaceful when they sleep. Their faces are so calm and sweet. I forget the crying. I forget the tantrums. I forget the difficulties of parenting when they are sleeping.
When they sleep, parenting feels easy.
When they sleep, I feel like I have this whole “parenting thing” under control.
I watch my girls when they sleep and it makes proud to be their mom.
I watch my girls when they sleep and it reminds me just how much I love them so…

Being a parent and watching your child grow up is truly unbelievable..
During the day, sometimes I just sit and watch M while holding on to K.
M used to be as small and helpless as K, now, she’s this spunky, talkative, affectionate, opinionated young girl…
All of this occurred in the span of three and a half years… unbelievable.
Then I look at K, only eight weeks ago, she was this super tiny preemie. She slept all day, cried all the time… completely helpless. Now, she stays awake longer, and likes to look at her baby toys. She kicks her legs like she is trying out for a soccer team. She waves her hands towards objects and sometimes can touch them. She can look at me and coo. She smiles. She holds her head up.
I know that I’m still just beginning. I know there are so many more milestones I have to witness. There are so many events that I will be a part of. They still have to grow up and be adults.
