This picture was taken in June of 2005. Sarah was 1 and Peter was 2. Don't they look adorable? So happy. So sweet. So loving.
Well, looks can be deceiving. They had been wrestling right before I took this picture and Sarah was winning.
You don't want to mess with Sarah. But that's a different post for a different day.
As I was looking at this picture, I realized that they started fighting early.
But I want these two to be friends. I want to them to grow up knowing they can count on one another.
Some days I hear Peter giggling while he's playing baby dolls with Sarah and other days I see Sarah contentedly watching Peter play a game on the computer.
But most days there is fighting, yelling, bickering, crying and occasionally hitting.
I know this is normal but it's something I hope they outgrow quickly. I want them to be able to overlook petty differences and small fights and really enjoy each other's company.
I want them to know that when Dan and I are gone, they still have family they can depend on.
I want them to remember -
"How good and pleasant it is when brothers(and sisters!) live together in unity!" - Psalm 133:1
