Holding hands everywhere. Tag along little sister.

Two peas in a pod. They have destroyed the house in no time and are lost in countless hours of pretend. Sorry in advance for lots of Kiki & Mia Grace pictures. Hoping to make them a little book.

Forever friends can be formed even at seven years old. (I know because I’ve been blessed with and still talk with several @amberjohanning @jaimethejam @kclayne24) Kiki is of those friends, and now we have to say goodbye before she moves far away! I still remember when my childhood best friend moved away and I was devastated. @reesejuel Hoping to help these two stay connected across states. Yay for social media! Today was Kiki and Mia Grace day and tonight we’re having a slumber party so these two can get as much time as possible in. Friendship is surely one of the sweetest things about this life. Hoping my girl learns to always love hard even when there’s a chance it can hurt — because it always ends up hurting in one way or another. Tough year for her learning about loss and the grief that comes with it.

Checking out the new bath time view. Really, she’s counting how many images include her versus little sister, like any good first born would do. I know her moves—I’m the oldest too. Final score MG-4 | Ellie-5. #momfail

Daddy’s helper. We are getting so close to finishing Aunt Peggy’s house. I can’t wait for you all to see what your generosity has given her. #homeiswherethehealingbegins

These two reunite today. Oh, how I can’t wait! BTW- Ellie calls these “shark kisses”.
