A study in contrasts...

Lia and Jillian are almost exactly four years apart in age. I originally worried {SO silly!} that they would be too far apart to truly become friends...and happily co-exist.

But as time goes by, I am loving that spread more and more. I am enjoying a perfect mix of toddler and big girl thankyouverymuch...

...and getting some amusement out of it too.

As I was attempting to organize recent photos (and that is NOT going well...I keep getting distracted. You are reading the case in point. :-))...I found two photos that kind of give a visual to the dynamic we are rocking these days.

My Lia...almost second grader. Reading quietly. Drenched in sun. Peaceful. Serene.

...and Jillian. Who just brings the sun with her. {You KNOW you secretly want to lick your ice cream bowl clean too. Live vicariously. I know I am. :-)}

So thankful for both my girls and their VERY different personalities. :-)
