Siblings

The last few posts here on the ol’ blog have been on the serious side. I’m really not so super serious, I promise. So to lighten things up, I have a few videos of Charlie & Lillian interacting in candid, everyday ways. This is real life around here.

* Lillian does occasionally wear pants, I promise!

* These videos are a pretty accurate representation of how frequently we hear Charlie say, “Junebug? Junebug! Junebug.”

* From the time Lillian was 9 months old to the time she was around 20 or 21 months, I was pretty sure my children would fight and bicker and hit and bite for the rest of their lives. I just could not believe how unprepared I was for the whole sibling rivalry thing. But somewhere in the past 5 or 6 months, they’ve turned a corner. They still fight, as evidenced in video #1 above, but a lot of the time, they play together, they sing together, they comfort each other, they offer to help each other, they have whole conversations that do not include me. I love watching this. They have a precious friendship, and I’m grateful for this short season of their childhoods when they are together constantly and can grow with each other and learn with each other about sharing and caring and loving.
