Twins

I just can't resist dressing the girls the same and I wonder how long I'm going to be able to get away with it =) Claire is already showing very strong opinions about what she doesn't want to wear so I better soak it up while I can.

My "twins" usually catch people's eye (a lady at a church we were visiting literally asked if they were twins!) but the most eye catching feature of the girl's these days is Eden's curly hair ( I must say it's beautiful). Almost without fail at every outing someone will stop me and comment on Eden's curly locks. This is of course sweet of them but when the girls are together people often say "Wow one of your girl's has such straight hair and the other has such beautiful curls. How did that happen?" Claire will quickly pipe in with "I used to have curly hair" and it literally BREAKS my heart to see her try to earn validation from strangers for her outward appearance. We always quickly pipe in to Claire about how lovely her hair is and then to both girls about how kind hearted, gentle and loving they both are because the heart is what's important!



Here are my two treasures loving their time at Maw Maw Springer's house after visiting church with her Sunday morning - digging in the dirt, discovering bugs and snails and moving rocks from here to there.



They had the best time with Uncle John as he was out frying his fresh caught fish. The girls couldn't get enough of the fish which made his day!

What a wonderful time with family!
Aunt Nancy, Uncle John and Maw Maw - this picture is priceless to me!

Kathryn, I'm not sure if you remember me but we were in choir together at Marshall (although I am a year younger than you) and we have a lot of mutual friends. I follow your blog and am so excited for your adoption. Your girls are precious! Don't worry about the "twins" thing, I dress my boys (ages 6 & 5) alike ALL THE TIME. People ask me if they are twins everywhere we go, although it does help that my youngest weighs the same as the oldest and he's almost as tall. Ha!
