Sister Relationships- Mikayla and Caitlyn

Sometimes I forget how many kids I have.  I mean, I know how many I have, and that it means lots of mouths, lots of laundry and lots of energy but I often overlook how many amazing little people I have and how many different relationships that creates.  When I stop and think about each kid and their relationship with their other siblings, it's pretty great!

I love when I get just two kids alone and I can see them interact.

I never had a sister.
I always wished for one.
I love that my girls get to experience that sister relationship!!

Here's Mikayla and Cait...my oldest and my current youngest...hanging out on my bed.

Little Sissy with her sucky fingers and a little bit of hair.

Cait calls Mikayla "ee-ee" (sissy).
Mikayla is the only sister that Cait calls sissy.  
The other two are called by their names.

Hugs all around.

Some kisses.

Mikayla dotes on this baby like crazy.
She gives her so many loves every day.
Cait sometimes refuses Mikayla's loving.
Mikayla gets her feelings hurt and a little bit frustrated.

Here Cait is talking about Mikayla's "ee-wings" {earrings.}  
Baby has a fascination for earrings!

I love these two girls, they are both strong and confident, they both know what they like and don't easily take no for an answer.  Mikayla was a sweet and happy toddler, she kept me entertained with her cute words and she loved to read books with me.  Cait is a book lover as well.  She will gladly choose reading a "bookie" over any other activity.

Almost 10 years apart, I can hardly believe how every move Cait makes is just as adorable, exciting and impressive as those similar moves were when Mikayla was doing them for the first time.  Thank you Lord for making each child's adventure new and Precious!!

Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring
writers? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a
little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform
like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this
site could definitely be one of the greatest in its
field. Excellent blog!

Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was
wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Also, they are lighter and can be used around plants which prefer somewhat
acid content in the soil composition. Owning a regular lawn mower does not mean
you have to give up on mulching your yard; you just have to be willing to do some work.

When ordering mulch, find out what the delivery cost is and compare
it between companies before ordering.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?
