Daniel overheard the girls laughing the other day, and then heard Hana Kate say to Eden, “We’re best sisters, Eden.” Eden replied, “yeah, we betht thithters.” These photos were taken after the girls had come inside after nearly 1.5(!!) hours of playing together outside, most of that time by themselves. They took their grass-covered, water-soaked shirts off and I was making them some smoothies. In the process, I looked over to see what they were laughing so hard about. Apparently, Eden was making silly faces and Hana Kate thought it was hilarious. This was taken on Monday, a day which I thought was pretty cold for our thus far mild SC winter. But they got their cabin fever out outside and continued their fun inside.
I’ve been rather surprised at how good of friends these girls have become already. (Not that they get along perfectly all the time.) I realize that best buddies at 2 and 4 is no guarantor that they’ll be best friends at 10, 20, or 30. But like most parents, I truly hope this is a sign of a deep and abiding friendship that will last for years to come. Grateful for it now, and hopeful for it in the future.
