I can remember when I found out that Elizabeth was a girl. Honestly, I was a little bit sad she was a girl, at first. I really wanted a 3rd child and I was afraid that Daryk wouldn't spring for the 3rd if we had 'one of each' already. Thankfully, he surprised me and let me have that last baby that I really wanted...
I remember being so excited to have a tiny version of me. She is a lot like me. And I was thrilled when we learned Spencer was a girl as well. And I cannot imagine life without either. I enjoy watching them bond and chat and sing and yell and laugh at each other. I get so much laughter from each of them each day. To watch them together is precious.
I know the road ahead is filled with massive piles of not fun sibling interactions. Fights over clothes, and shoes, and cosmetics, and everything in between those things too. Fights over friends and boys and toys and food.... but moments like this.... when they can both still fit and sit willingly into a cart at Sams while sharing ice cream is sorta awesome. I get so excited for them to be the very best of friends because that is who my sisters are. I pray daily for God to keep them close and guard their relationship. I pray for joy and a sense of teamwork over all 3 of them daily.
I love this personality. She brightens up ANY day.
And she's still snuggly and amazing.
Sassy embodied in a photo.
New hairdo with clothes that do not match.
That's my girl.
