never want to forget... sibling edition

These kids really are best friends. They light up when the see each other for the first time in the morning or after nap time. They act like they haven't seen each other for days.

Things I never want to forget...

Vanessa running in the room and seeing Amelia starts yelling, Mia, Mia, Mia. Then smashing her cheeks together and saying, chubby cheeks. (i'm sure amelia just loves when she does this)

How Elijah likes to teach Vanessa new things.
He'll say, do it like this Nay, just like me. 
 Or sitting her down in his room and telling every story he remembers from the bible. 
He always wants her in the room with him playing. 

Amelia laughing out loud at Elijah. He makes silly faces at her and dances around the room. Her eyes follow him around and she giggles for such a long time. 
Caleb and I were laying down on the bed with Amelia. We were trying to make her smile, but she wouldn't give us anything. The second Elijah and Vanessa came in she started smiling at them and only stopped when they left. 

Nay and IE (what vanessa calls elijah) hiding under their covers and yelling at us to come find them, but they can't stop laughing making it pretty easy to know where they are.

Elijah telling me that I don't need to do anything for the girls. He'll take care of them. 

It's one of my favorite things as a mom to watch them interact.
