Better Together- "Sunday Snapshot"

January 30, 2011

Cooking with Mommy BLOG
For as long as I can remember, I woke up before anyone in our house. I would come downstairs and drink my coffee and get lost in the peace and quiet. It was my alone time and I could get a lot done in those first few hours.

That all changed when Reagan joined the family. She is an early riser just like her Mommy, so now it has become our special time together. We eat breakfast together and then she follows me around the kitchen as I clean up and prepare for the day.

Protecting her sister BLOG
Reagan loves to play, but she is not a big fan of playing by herself. Some mornings she almost seems lost until "Sleeping Beauty" decides to wake up and start her day!

getting my balance blog
There are always lots of giggles between them and Sarah has learned how to "encourage" her sister to do things and to imitate what she does and says.

Laverne and Shirley Collage BLOG IT
I don't necessarily think you need words to describe the interaction between these two. When you see them together it's about as plain as day.

Finger in mouth BLOG
They are totally fine on their own.......

Let me tell you a secret BLOG
But they are definitely "BETTER TOGETHER"

Just a snpashot of a typical morning with the girls. Hanging out in their pjs(thanks to all the friends and family members that have sent the girls such adorable matching pjs. They are putting them to good use with all of these lazy snow days)..... unruly bedhead and all!

I usally try to tame the wild hair with a bow or clippy so they can see what they are playing with, but Reagan is into removing anything and everything from her hair these days. I am at a loss with her hair.... it has a mind of it's own and I cannot get it to lay flat. I wet it and brush it and bounces right back up!

Speaking of bouncing right back up..... Anyone notice a certain someone is upright and on her feet in almost all of these photos?? She has already taken her first few steps, but is not quite sprinting across the room just yet!

You photos are as always beautiful.. & your babies.. PRECIOUS!

Debbie said...

Very sweet post!! I love that you get some alone time with Reagan in the morning.
And walking? yeah!!! We haven't encouraged G to walk yet due to being on holiday (would have been a nightmare watching her toddle by the pool!) but I am deperate to see her take her first step now...we are nearly there.
It must be quite something to see your two daughters bond and become close. There is nothing better than a sister to confide in..I have 4 and love them all to pieces! Have a great weekend Lisa! dx

Your photos just make me smile!

I am so excited that when spring finally arrives and it WILL - that we are going to hang out!

Hugs and love!

Jodi said...

Sweet, sweet post! I never had a sister and am sooo thankful that my girls have sisters - There's just a special bond between sisters!

Jennifer said...

Your girls are absolutely adorable and obviously love each other so much! Happy Sunday!

Number 6 and no more counting! said...

I just adore that quiet time in the morning myself. But, I am sure I wouldn't mind a change of pace like that!

Those two are so sweet together. Love, love, love, the matching jammies!

Lisa, these photos truly capture their bond!

Thank you, for sharing and HAPPY SUNDAY!


Jodee said...

Your girls are soooo lucky to have each other! I always wanted a sister. Of course, I love, love, love the matching PJs and bed head too! Cute pictures!

Aleasing said...

Quiet precious moments ^_^

Have a great week!!!

Shari said...

These are precious photos! The love is so evident...Keep them close so when Sarah is 16 and her 12 year old sister is bugging her you can pull them out and remind her how much she truly loves her;)

Special K said...

My sister is my BFF. In spite of some hair pulling when we were kids, some clothes stealing in our teens, some differences in opinion in our 20's. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I wish that kind of relationship for Sarah and Reagan. :)

Marla said...

Awwwww, that last shot is just too sweet. Amazing how quickly the bonds of sisterhood take hold, isn't it?

I have a feeling it isn't going to be long at all before baby girl is running around the whole place, she is looking awfully confident in herself in these pics! :)

Happy Sunday!

Diane said...

I totally get it! They are just like my two girls!!!! They soooooo complement each other!! It is such a beautiful sight to see!!

Kim said...

Melt. My. Heart.

Sweet sisters! They are so cute together! When Reagan starts walking and then running around... you'll never be able to stop the two of them!

Love your Winter pictures. They're awesome!

Happy Sunday!

I love the photos of the girls together. You can see that there is a sweetness between them. And they look darling with their morning hair :)

Michelle R Photography said...

I am learning how special it is to have a sister - something I never knew growing up. I love seeing the special relationship between my girls. I am sure it just melts your heart to see your girls together. These are adorable shots of them, just being them.

I hope you have a wonderful week!!


Gail said...

There's not a whole lot better than the sister bond that they share. It really is special.
That last picture is incredibly sweet!

So I am lovin' their black and pink pj's...too cute. I don't have any wisdom about Reagan's hair, I do remember a time when Grace's went through a similar stage. Maybe it needs to get longer? I'm just guessing.

Have great Sunday and week, Lisa!



Missy said...

Awww! What a great way to start my Sunday! Yes, I am just waking up...see I told you I am not a morning person :) But, I am glad to see that Miss Reagan is and you two can have special alone time. That's priceless. I love seeing the bond between Sarah and Reagan. It's as if they have been sisters for years. Sooo sweet! That last pic MELTED MY HEART!!! As for Reagan's hair...Paige's was tons worse. It would stick up all over the place. Things started getting better once it got longer and thicker. I think it just takes time.

Everything Beautiful Shay said...

A precious post and I have two just like them. I actually shot some shots of my two together yesterday and am going to post a similar post. :)
LOVE all your photos of your angels!!!
Blessings and Joy!

Dita said...

Every shot is gorgeous, but that last shot......took my breath away!


Anonymous said...

Such cute photos! I've heard that using baby oil helps keep the unruly hair tamed and down!

Unknown said...

Sisters are the best : ) The matching pj's are SO cute : ) LOVE them! I love that the girls get along so perfectly. Sarah is a sweetheart!

Happy Sunday : ) Love, Becky

May said...

Heather H. said...

I have the same trouble with my daughter's hair. It is SO fine, and this dry winter air really does not help matters!

jade said...

The pictures brought up tears in my eyes - again!
They are beautiful, just like your girls! Have a nice week, and a little less snow?

JMCS said...

So darling Lisa. Looks like you are going to have to get used to splitting your morning time with Reagan (lol). I just love your gorgeous images of your little sweetie.


Stefanie said...

Better together, indeed!
How I love to see Sarah blossoming into such a loving big sister! And Reagan is just so adorable... bedhead an all!
I can see why you love to spend your mornings with her! What a precious time that must be :)
Happy Sunday, Lisa!

Love Letters To China said...

These two are so precious! I agree with so many who have already commented....the last photo is adorable. They really have bonded so well. I'm so happy to see this happen.

I bet you don't mind sharing your morning time with that little one. I certainly wouldn't! :-)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

So good to see the sisters bonding so well! They are so precious! When my daughters were young and had unruly hair, I put a little non-greasy lotion to tame it. Good luck, Wendy

Jen said...

Great photos of darling girls of course! I am thinking of you often lately as I get ready to go to China in 2 weeks to meet my daughter and bring her home!! I have really enjoyed your blog throughout the wait, especially when you went to China. I live near Tongu Momma hope one day I might meet you and your precious girls. All the best.

Virginia said...

Those baby girls of yours are precious, and the sisterly bond is obvious. Reagan's hair looks like it's really growing!

Amber said...

Oh goodness that last shot of the two of them is precious!!! said...

Ahh!! I just love baby bed head!! She could not be any cuter with or without a bow. We went through the pulling bow out stage several months back but now she is finally all about her hair pretties!! Love your photos! Thanks for sharing such precious moments with your girls!
