Project 52 – I Can Do That!

Chorus Line anyone? That is what Madeline reminds me of lately…I can do that, I can do that!

Everything, absolutely everything Chloe does, Madeline is 2 steps behind! This isn’t exactly anything new, what is new is the level of intensity this behavior has increased! If Chloe has it, her sister wants it! In all honesty, it makes me smile. Watching her look up to her big sister, I remember my little sister looking up to me that way growing up :).

My husband for the most part grew up as an only child and has always cheered for having a large family. I on the other hand grew up in a family of 4, always thought I wanted 4 kids…until I had 1. Lol. But I am happy with our family, and although it can be tough at times trying to juggle it all – and positively frightening knowing another is on the way – they sure do make me smile. I am so happy my daughters will always have each other to laugh, cry, love, and even hate sometimes. There is one things that never goes away, family.

My sister and I were as different as different can be, and still are to tell you the truth. Growing up we rarely got along, but age has given us a new respect for one another, and we have grown to be each others closest friends. She is the first person I call when I need to talk to someone, well…her and my Mom, and she is always there for me.

I look at Chloe & Madeline and I pray that they have the same closeness that I share with my sister, and I am so thankful that we are taking the plunge into having another. It may be chaos, but it is MY chaos. And I love it.

    I love you – even though this made me cry! I hope that Babes will one day have a sister too so she can experience the same love and joy that my own has brought me.

    I completely agree about sisters — I am very close to my sisters, and I know my husband’s sisters are all best friends, too. So thankful for them. How precious your girls have each other!

    I just love this! It reminds me of my 2 daughters and also growing up with a sister. I’m so happy that I have 2 girls, they will always have each other no matter what happens, sisterly love is so special! Even though I’d still like to try for that boy!

    Great picture! It’s perfect!

    This is exactly how my youngest is with her oldest sister. I, like you, was the oldest in my family, and my younger sister was the same. Although she was 12 years younger than me so it was a little different. It is interesting for me to watch my oldest reach out and want to build that relationship with her little sister as they are starting to have more in common. It really is a wonderful thing to see. Sisters just doing what sister do, love it.
