Sisters


It has been so interesting to watch Stella evolve into her role as a Big Sister.  Initially (at the hospital) she could care less about Chloé and was more interested in eating Chloé's "birthday cake" and opening the Big Sister presents people brought for her.

Once we got home from the hospital, she would occasionally ask to "hold it" but refused to call her Chloé.  I think this was because she was "Baby" and "Baby Sister" the entire pregnancy since we didn't announce Chloé's name until after she was born. 

Sometime over the summer, the princess and Mommy phase kicked into high gear… Stella now wants to hold Chloé, feed her bottles, WASH the bottles (get after it sister haha!), push her in the stroller, hold her hand, make her smile and laugh, and she is always protective of her.  If Chloé is crying Stella will simply bust out "Let it Go" because that is her go-to song and she knows that singing can typically calm Chloé down. 

Now that Chloé is developing more of a personality, it is simply MAGICAL to watch their bond grow.   Stella has Chloé eating out of the palm of her hand and you can tell they adore one another based on how their faces light up when they interact with each other.  

They could not be MORE DIFFERENT babies.  Stella has been "spirited" since the second she was born.  She was fussy, cried a LOT, talked a LOT, and has always had a vivacious, outgoing, center of attention personality.  Chloé has been happy, content, quiet, and extremely laid back from the get-go. I think this is partially why I feel the transition from 1 to 2 kids has been so smooth.  It doesn't get easier than Chloé Grace! (Praise God for her sweet, calm spirit! Lets pray it stays haha!)

It is hard to fathom that these girls who definitely look like sisters but have totally opposite personalities, both came from US.  What a gift.  We are indeed blessed and I look forward to seeing them evolve and change as they grow older and closer as sisters… and best friends :)
