You can read their first status report, here.

We’re six months into their lives as sisters and I have to say that their time together just gets better and better.

Yes, I know that there will come a point in their lives when the fighting will start, but I’m going to revel in their joy and harmony and cherish every second of their happiness together.

With K sitting and crawling, it’s easier for them to do things together now.  It’s fun to watch them play with the same toys.

I love watching K observe how M handles and plays with certain toys and objects.  I feel like K is learning so much from all simple acts of playing together.

K still adores M.  K is always full of smiles when M is around and giving her attention.  The hardest we’ve ever witnessed K laugh was due to M’s silly dancing.  Just watching how K looks at M, I know that she is going to look up to her sister in every way.

M still loves K.  “I love my little sister,” is often heard coming out of M’s mouth.  M loves K’s fuzzy hair.  M loves hugging and kissing her little sister.  M loves having K lie down next to her.  M is very patient when K begins to climb all over her, or when K decides to pull on her hair.  M doesn’t fight back.  M just lets it all happen.  She’s such a good big sister.

I’m hoping that these feelings they have toward each other continue to grow.  I hope it never changes, even through all the fighting and disagreements they will encounter growing up, I hope the remember how much they adore and love each other.

Hope you all have a fun and safe Fourth of July holiday.  We will be celebrating with family and I hope to have a blog update on our holiday next week!

With K approaching the four month age, I think it’s time we did a status report on how M & K have been doing.

If I had to sum it up with one word, I’d have to say “PRECIOUS.”

From the beginning, K has fixated on M.  I remember asking their pediatrician if it was normal for K to make eye contact with her sister more than me.  Naturally, her pediatrician said it was normal and it was because M was much more animated than I was.

Now, K absolutely adores her older sister.  Every little move that M makes is followed by a sweet smile or giggle by her little sister.  K is amazed by all the things that M can do.  I can see in K’s eyes that she cannot wait to be able to run, jump, and play around like her big sister.  It’s truly amazing to see all that love she has for her M.

In return, M really loves K.  Whenever we come across relatives we haven’t seen, or even strangers, she never fails to introduce those people to her baby “stister.”  On days that M and I go out on our little mommy/daughter days, she will find herself reminded of K constantly.  We were at the grocery store and heard a baby cry, M turns and tells me, “That sounds like my baby sister, K.”

When asked if we should leave the baby with a relative or a friend, M’s reaction is always, “No, she has to come home with us!”

Every morning, when they both wake up, they have to lie down together on a pillow and just hug and cuddle.  M shower’s K with kisses.  K turns towards her big sister with loving eyes and works on her reaching and touching skills by going for M’s face.  I have TONS of pictures of their time together each morning.

Playing is becoming more and more of a real thing between them now.  As K is getting older, the playtime is getting to be more interactive.  M has a “silly walk” that she does that always gets K smiling and laughing.

I love the bond they are building.  I love the relationship they are forming.

I know that as they get older, there will be fights.  I know there will be misunderstandings.  I know there will be drama.  I know there will be tears.  I know there will be downs.

I also know that there will be ups.  There will be heart-to-heart sister talks.  I know there will be things they will tell each other that they might not tell me.  I know there will be hugs.  I know there will be laughter.  I know there will be fun.

I love watching these girls grow together.
