I think of our girls as so independent.
Sure, they're usually together. And they often dress in coordinating clothes ('cause it's easier for me!)...and they'll occasionally want to match.
But developmentally? Psychologically? They seem to be very confident in themselves. They're two little people, orbiting in close proximity, but usually very much doing their own things.
I guess that's why it feels extra sweet to nab the occasional picture of my girls, clearly comforted by being together.
I took this at their open house, two days before school started. Hubby couldn't come with us (as he was at his own open house across town). While I waited in line to get our car tags for the pickup line, I told the girls to wait in the line to get their tickets for the popsicle stand. I could see them at all times...in their school gym...but they were still apprehensive to wait in a line themselves and ask for something of an adult, without me being right there.
I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures as they inched closer to the front of the line, clearly a bit nervous at the prospect ahead of them.
My sweet girls!!! I am so incredibly grateful for them...and for the fact that they have each other!!!
