Sisters, sisters
There were never such devoted sisters,
Never had to have a chaperone,
No sir,I'm here to keep my eye on her
Caring, sharing
Every little thing that we are wearing
When a certain gentleman arrived from Rome
She wore the dress, and I stayed home
All kinds of weather, we stick together
The same in the rain and sun
Two different faces, but in tight places
We think and we act as one
Those who have seen us
Know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up, but no one can
Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister
And Lord help the sister, who comes between me and my man!

I've always liked this song from the Irving Berlin movie "White Christmas"- wonder if Ainsley and Harper will be this way when they get older...

Anyways, for now, can I just tell you how thrilled I am that Ainsley and Harper are finally at the ages where they can start playing together and actually enjoy each other's company! I think it's going to make things a lot easier once Bennett gets here. They pretty much enjoy the same movies and shows on tv and they are starting to color together, play doll house, kitchen and really anything Ainsley decides they are going to do. Harper adores Ainsley, although she wouldn't admit it if she knew how, and she does everything her big sister does, good and bad, hmm...

Here are some pictures I took of them one lazy morning, still in their pj's- I know, you usually see my girls in their outfits and bows but believe it or not, they don't sleep in all of that!;)

Watching Sleeping Beauty, please excuse the towel on the chair, so ugly, but it's for smelly, Blitzen. Well, at least I think he smells and he licks and his skin is flaking right now with his allergies, have I mentioned he drives me crazy??

Right before I took this Ainsley had her hands holding her chin up and it was so cute because Harper watched her and did it too but I couldn't get a picture quick enough.

See how nicely they play? Harper's just on her phone, talking away and Ainsley is quietly coloring, ahh, just so nice. It's not always like this though.

So for now they're good friends, 12 years from now or 2 minutes from now, that could be a different story!


  1. So sweet!! Soon they'll be sisters who are "mothering" their sweet baby brother!

  2. They are so cute! Fun times...I'm sure they will always be close...I have two brothers and always WANTED a sister! So, the big day is coming! I'm so excited to see him! Rest and relax these next couple of weeks....

  3. Wow they are getting so big. We miss them. Carson asks for them all the time. Hope all goes well on the 22nd. Can't wait to meet Bennett. Love you guys.
