One of my favorite times of the day is when the girls are bathed, in their pajamas and ready for bed. And, not just because that means mommy and daddy get to relax for an hour or two.

Recently, Emmy has graduated to her "big girl bed" and we snuggle in together and read books. At nearly age 3, Emmy's manipulation skills are at an all-time high. Many nights she'll snuggle up to me, give me a hug and during our embrace, sweetly say, "one more book, please, mom... I love you."

A few nights ago, the girls weren't feeling so sweet. They were fighting over books, poking each other in the eyes and being, well...sisters. It was so "normal." I grabbed the camera and started snapping photos.

Here they are, my sweet girls, being sisterly. I honestly didn't know if I'd ever see this day. And so, I'm ecstatic to be able to share them with you.

(My two stinkers, acting sweet!)


  1. LOVE this, especially the 3rd pic - and the last one! TOOOOOO sweet!

  2. Your girls are so cute! These are great pictures. :)

  3. Gotta love it!! My boys are like that too.

  4. This is payback for how we used to behave! :)

  5. I love this. Blissfully normal! Jake and Aidan have started the brother fights too. Jake likes to take Aidan's toys. Aidan thinks every toy in the house is his. Love it! Thanks for the smile!!!
