Already hanging out together, doing sister stuff

Well, maybe not quite yet. But Suzi does, I think, get the fact that her baby sister is in there. If you ask her what her baby sister's name is, she'll say "name Ivey!" When I ask where Ivey is, she points to my belly. I've tried to get her to feel the baby kick, but her little hands can only stay still for so long before she's running off to the next fun thing.

I can't wait to put both of them in the tub together for a bubble bath. Maybe one day they'll share a bed and we'll have to keep telling them to stop giggling (or fighting) and go to sleep. I hope that one day they go shopping together, paint each other's toenails, cut each other's hair, and share clothes... I even hope they get in trouble together. I hope that someday when they're older they go out and get good and drunk together and laugh all night. I want them to have stories to tell when they grow up.

But so far, in this picture, Suzi is taking a nap and Ivey is not.

When I was pregnant with my second girl, I tried very hard to let my two year old feel the baby kick. It never worked!

It's very fun to have two little girls running around the house! You have many wonderful days ahead of you!

Let's just hope they don't get drunk and cut each other's hair.
