My girls best friends...Worst enemies

It is so fun to watch my girls interact more and more now that Brooklyn is getting older. Some of my favorite moments are when they are in the bath tub together at night and get a case of the giggles, they will laugh and laugh it is so cute. We had to turn the door knob on their bedroom door around so we could lock it from the outside to get Aly to stay in their room at night. So a lot of times when I come home in the morning from the paper out I can hear Aly and Brooklyn in their room playing and laughing.

Funny enough some of the times that stress me out the most are the same times. Some nights the girls will be taking a bath and Brooklyn will start screaming and I go in and find that Aly is sitting on top of her and she is just trying to keep her head above water and Aly is laughing while Brooklyn has a look of terror. The other night I put both girls to bed and Brooklyn cried and cried, so after about 45minutes and she still had not calmed down I went in to find that Aly had crawled into her crib and fallen asleep and was taking up the whole crib so Brooklyn was just sitting on the edge of the crib trying to be comfortable.

Some days I can not wait to see how great of friends they are going to be and other days I think if they keep fighting this much as they get older I am going to go crazy. I love my girls

I LOVE it, it is the same at my house. They are the best of friends & then enemies & sometimes it happens in a matter of seconds. Some days I have to make a rule that they can't play in the same room as each other but the majority of the time they are best friends. Yesterday though Alyssa comes running in to the kitchen saying something & Zhara is following behind her all sad & said "Alyssa said she doesnt' want to be my friend anymore" It was kind of amusing but also a good teaching moment. I sure miss you & the way you always make me laugh!

I love that picture of the girls in the crib together. The girls holding hands is really cute too. Aly cracks me up, and Brooklyn is just trying to figure out her big sister.

They're so cute!

Your girls are so cute and they look like you. That is my favorite thing as being mother, is watching my kids play and giggle, and the the most annoying when they fight.
