The first time I heard it, my heart skipped a beat:
“Come on, H-berry! Let’s go play.”
An invitation for the little sis to come hang out with the big sis.
To be included. To be a part of the Big Girl action.
Baby H paused, blinked & hurried her tiny little legs over to her sister, smiling broadly.
It didn’t matter what they were playing~ it only mattered that Little O invited Baby H to play with her.
Months and years from now, when I think back on this summer, I know I’m going to have lots of memories competing as favorites.
But I know I’ll always remember that this was the summer.
The summer our two daughters stopped co-exhisting together and started playing together. Interacting with each other.
The summer that I’ll look back on, smile and tell them, “you two have been peas in a pod since Baby H could walk!”
The summer where I realized how a simple phrase~ “Come on, H-berry!” could open up a whole new world of sister adventures.
Love, love love.
Counting My Kisses: I’m so happy I captured this memory~ this phrase has been running around in my head for weeks. Each time Little O says it to Baby H, I can’t help but grin. Our two little adventurers, out to explore the world. Together. Could life be any sweeter?
Have a GREAT weekend, friends! See you back here on Monday!
