M – first born

She’s intense.  She’s ‘in your face’ but in the super friendly way.  She sees wants to be everyone’s friend the second she meets you.  She doesn’t understand personal space because she just wants to be your best friend.  She’s super sweet.  She’s affectionate.  She’s funny.  She’s opinionated.  She’s understanding and can ‘go with the flow’ in most circumstances.  She’s articulate.  She’s innocent.  She never means anyone any harm.  She can lose control because she gets so excited and happy about the smallest and simplest situations.  She is a fun, but strong, personality.

K – the baby

She’s a bit quieter.  She’s a bit more reserved.  She can run and laugh with her sister, but you can tell she holds back a little bit more than M does.  While M openly laughs loudly, K can be seen giggling demurely with her hand over her mouth.  She’s a bit more cautious when it comes to other kids.  She’s learning to be more friendly, but hasn’t gotten too close to people she doesn’t know.  She’s opinionated.  She’s strong willed.  She’s a fighter.  She won’t give in.  She will make known when she is unhappy.  She’s a little more serious.  She shows affection on her terms and doesn’t like to be bothered with random hugs and kisses (especially when she’s in the middle of something). She’s the baby and it definitely shows.

I’m loving how their personalities are shaping and changing.  I love the similarities.  I love the differences.  I love watching them interact and how their personalities affect how they play and deal with each other.

All this time, I always thought that the jealousy would come from M.  I always thought that M would be the more jealous one.  She’s my first born.  For the first three years of her life, she’s been the only one.  Naturally, I thought that she would be the one that would act out whenever she’d see me hold her sister.

Nope.

It’s all K.

K, at 15 (almost 16) months old, is very possessive.

Whenever she sees me cuddle with her big sister, she immediately wants in.

Neh! (No!)”  K says, as she pulls my arm away from her big sister.

Arrr-mah (Arm)” K says, as she takes my arm away from her big sister and hugs it for herself.

Poor M.

Sometimes I feel so bad at the amount of attention I give K at the moment.  K is at that age where she needs to be watched like a hawk and I feel like M gets a little put aside.  M has been very understanding and will usually find ways to work with us, or will usually find ways to entertain herself.

I try to steal little moments with M.  It’s so interesting to see K’s reaction.  I wasn’t expecting K to be so territorial with me.

It’s a good thing this mommy has two “arr-mahs,”  one for each of my girls.

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.

Sisters.

Kisses, kisses everywhere…

M loves to give K kisses.

Every morning, M covers her little sister in kisses.  I think it’s adorable.

I think it’s really sealing their bond as sisters.

I feel like it’s definitely made an impact on how K feels about her sister.  There is a definite bond between them now and I can see it whenever K looks at M.

K, at this young age, loves to look at her sister.  Her little eyes follow M where ever M goes.  She’s even given M a big, gummy smile, something she hasn’t even done for me yet…

As each day passes, their sisterly bond just seems to get stronger and stronger.  It’s all thanks to those kisses!

Hanging out with the niece and nephews this past weekend, and playing with our little baby nephew got us thinking..

M loves her little baby cousin.

Would she be open to the prospect of a new baby in the family?!

She knows what a baby is.

So, we asked the question.

Me:  M, do you want a baby brother or baby sister?
M: Baby sisser.
Me:  Do you want a baby sister or baby brother?
Me: Baby sisser.

Ok.  Sister.

But does she know what a sister is?

So, we asked the question.

Me:  M, do you want a baby boy or a baby girl?
M:  Baby girl!
Me:  Do you want a baby girl or baby boy?
M: Baby boy!

Ok.. some confusion.

Me:  M, a baby brother is a….
M:  Girl!
Me: A baby sister is a…
M: Boy!

Ok.. major confusion.

Now, we are in the process of teaching her that brothers are boys and sisters are girls. 

Surprisingly, she already knows the difference between boys and girls.  More often than not, if we ask her about a person she knows and if he/she is a boy or a girl, she’d get it right.. maybe she’s a really good guesser. 

She wants a sisser…
