Sisters truly are one of the best things in life. I, personally, have a pretty good relationship with my little sister who is 5 years younger than me, which is a pretty big but decent gap. When I found out I was having another girl, I was worried that since BG1 is over 6 years older than the baby, they might not play together at all. I found I was happily proven wrong.
The love that these girls have for each other is crazy cute. All day, every day, as soon as the baby opens her eyes she’ll call out for her sister. “SHAAAAA”, she’ll say. Her face lights up at the mere mention of her, let alone when she sees her in person. She immediately spots her big sister’s picture and when she sees her, she’s quick to run and give her a hug.
My big girl is such an awesome big sister, always looking out for the baby and making sure she’s safe, especially since she seems to have no fear nowadays climbing and sliding down everything in sight. I swear, if we don’t pay attention to her she might end up with s broken bone soon. Yikes! I’m not even going to mention how many bruises and bumps she’s had in the past. Crazy baby!
But the best part is seeing them play together. Granted, most of the time it’s BG1 playing and BG2 messing up her sister’s stuff. But occasionally, you’ll see them dance and sing together, run around and chase each other, and just have fun together. Those are the moments that will stay with me forever.
My two beautiful girls. Sisters for life.
