As Paige develops there are an increasing number of ways that Lucy and her can interact. When Lucy is pounding on a drum or blowing into her recorder, Paige bounces, smiles, and occasionally claps. This evening when Paige was jumping in her ExerSaucer, Lucy stood next to her and jumped. There is nothing more precious to me then hearing them laughing together.

When it is time for Paige to eat Lucy loves to eat the same thing. If Paige is having banana, pear, or apple baby food, Lucy insists on eating one of the same. Not coincidently, Lucy never seems interested in playing the "match the food" game when Paige is eating sweet potatoes or peas!?!?!

Libby and I are very excited to see their interaction continue to increase as Paige begins to walk and talk. We can already see how they will each teach each other many things. While we are optimistic that they will mainly teach each other positive things, we would be naive to thing they won't be partners in crime through the years.

In addition to all the fun times they will have, we are also anticipating the squabbles, etc. All part of being siblings. I recently read a quote that summarized this point. It said, "Siblings are great to lean on, count on, and tell on!"

As one of four I couldn't complete a siblings post without a picture of my siblings. (Truth be told, I couldn't resist showing a pic of the beard either!) As many siblings do, I feel a strong and unique connection with each of my siblings. Another quote I read described brothers and sisters as "nature's built in friends". I feel that accurately describes the crew below.

Libby and I feel luck to have the girls and we can already see how lucky they are to have each other.
