One of my favorite phenomenons to witness over the past seven months has been the effortless sibling bonding that has occurred in our family.  Only seventeen months apart, the girls in particular are nearly inseparable.  As any doting younger sister would do, Elizabeth attempts to mimic everything that Mary Grace does.  Understandably, this is equal parts terrifying and hilarious.  They’re both strong-willed, opinionated, and quite vocal… so it makes for some spirited moments around these parts.  Elizabeth may have come home as a tiny “failure to thrive” baby… but seven months later, girlfriend can hold her own.  Just test her.

So, some of the sweeter moments over the last few days…





…but just to keep it real… this happens too.  A lot.
