Sister Sister

My friend Leslie made a comment on my previous post about how Lexi and Lyla must be a blast together. For a while they really didn't seem to notice each other. It was probably at about 4 months or so that they really began to recognize each other. I remember one day I was at work and Josh texted me to call him because he had the coolest thing to tell me. I called him and he said that Lexi and Lyla were sitting in their Bumbos and he walked into the kitchen to put something away. When he turned back around, they were turned looking at each other and smiling. I almost cried because I had been getting so scared that I somehow ended up with identical twins that didn't like each other! As an only child, I am so excited to see the special bond that will form between my girls. I think it will be such a blessing for them to have one another! So here are some pictures to capture that bond that is evolving between Lexi and Lyla. Unfortunately for now, that bond seems to be that they like to have each other's hands in their mouths. (Lyla is on the left and Lexi is on the right)

Hey Lyla, I wanna tell you a secret...I love you Sister!

No Mama, we weren't telling secrets about you!

We're totally innocent.

Lexi, one of these days I'm gonna figure out how to get into that seat with you!

I love you beautiful girls. I hope one day you bring as much joy to each other's lives as you bring to mine.


  1. Love the pictures and the captions. What better bond than sharing germs with each other :)

  2. This is so sweet! I love the pictures! I know exactly what you mean by when they look at each other and just smile, like they are saying "I love you"! So sweet!

  3. They are so cute! I found your blog through 3 under 3!

  4. That is so sweet! You are such a GREAT mommy!
