15 Special Moments Between Sisters

One of the most incredible things to watch over this past year is the relationship that has grown between Avery and Harlan. As they get older, their relationship gets more and more exciting. It’s no longer this one sided relationship that has the big sister showing all of the love and affection. Now that Avery is entering the toddler stage, one of her favorite things to do is to play with and love on her sister.

The girls spend nearly all of their time together every single day. Avery gets upset when we have to drop Harlan off at school because she misses her big buddy. Harlan can’t wait for Avery to wake up in the morning just so she can see her smiling little face and start her day with her. It’s so precious to watch the love that these girls have for one another. Just seeing them interact with one another on a daily basis constantly amazes me and makes me feel so blessed to call myself their mother.

    I caught the girls in a deep conversation one morning and I thought it was the funniest thing. Avery was trying to get Harlan's toys and Harlan wanted to teach her just how she was supposed to play with them.

    My toddler Harlan took this photo. I love that she wanted to get Avery in the shot so bad. It's probably a better picture of the both of them than I could have taken.

    This was such a funny moment between these two. Harlan was making Avery laugh by dancing and twisting back and forth. Avery kept trying to imitate her while laughing. By the end of it both girls were laughing so hard they were rolling around on the floor.

    I sat the girls down and tried so many times to get the "perfect" shot of them both looking and smiling at the camera. Neither of them were having it. Instead they gave me this photo which I absolutely adore. Two seconds after this Avery handed her cake pop over to Harlan to give her a bite.

    The girls got so many stuffed animals during our trip to Disney. They loved sitting in the bed watching the Disney channel with their Disney buddies. This was too cute not to snap a picture.

    This is one of my all time favorite photos of the girls. The laughter and love shown on their face is so evident. Harlan grabbed Avery's hand and they just walked down the sidewalk together holding hands. It was such a sweet moment to witness.

    We took a special trip to a strawberry farm while we were in Florida. The girls fell in love with this strawberry seat and wanted to sit in it the entire visit.

    The girls took advantage of being in the suburbs while we were in Florida and went outside every single morning to play. Harlan loved this car, but she loved the joy that she got from pushing Avery in it even more.

    Their newest game to play together is chase. Harlan is so much faster than Avery is and once she realizes she is out of Avery's eyesight she comes running back to Avery to give her a great big hug.
