Love, Twue Love

Let me tell you something about love. In our home, love is a dress. Love is a tutu. Love is a pwiiiiiiincess. Love is pure, innocent, and sometimes comical.

Everyday, I have the honor of witnessing the love and admiration a little boy has for his big sister. If she speaks, he watches intently and repeats to the best of his ability whatever was spoken (or in some cases yelled in some crazy gibberish language). When an interesting ballet move is made up, he is right there behind, copying every move of her arms and legs. The way he studies, and desires to be just like her…..that is admiration and love.

So yes, love is a dress around here. My little lady hardly ever wears pants, and you better believe that if she wants to be a princess, so does he! My little train guy won’t be a pwincess (I wish you could hear him say that) forever, and in the meantime, I have plenty of opportunities for graduation and wedding photos. And I have to say, in his defense, that he is very much his own person with his own interests. He is unique, and I hope that one day, despite the difficult moments, his sister will be able to look back and see how very much she was loved.

  1. Awesome blog. I know eventually I will miss these days. It will be fun though when he graduates and get’s married. He has no idea what kind of picture stash we have!

    Love you through and through,
    Micah

  2. Awww! That is So sweet! (and props for the Princess Bride reference! Favorite movie EVAH!)

  3. That is so sweet! My youngest son used to do that with his older brother. Now he doesn’t so much but every once in a while he does and it’s just the sweetest thing.

  4. Awwww!! So sweet!!!

    Michael was like that with Grace and I have several pics of him dressed up at Belle. 😉

    They still sweetly play whatever with each other… what a neat relationship we get to watch unfold! 🙂

  5. Both of mine have been into nail polish and high heels. I have some great photos. It’s so sweet to see the way the younger ones adore their older siblings. If only the older sibling in my house felt the same way 😉

  6. So sweet. What a nice memory.

  7. watching the love between siblings is just such a blessing! Sometimes I think we can learn a lot from how our kids relate to each other.

  8. That’s so precious. What a special friendship they have.

  9. That is the cutest thing ever. Love it!
