“Because I have a sister, I will always have a friend.”
I love watching these two together. Evelyn loves both of her siblings, but her relationship with Charlotte has been so fun to watch evolve. Evelyn is at the age where she can Charlotte can actually “play” together.
Yesterday I was halfway through my workout when I heard Evelyn crying upstairs. I asked Charlotte to go upstairs to play with Evelyn while I finished up. After I finished and went upstairs, I just stood at the door to Evelyn’s room watching (and wishing I had brought my phone upstairs). Charlotte had gotten into Evelyn’s crib with her and put a big quilt over the top. They were playing in their “crib tent.”
Charlotte has also been Evelyn’s cheerleader and teacher. She cheered her on when she was learning to crawl up the stairs. And she was actually the one who taught Evelyn how to come back down the stairs backwards.
When Evelyn hurts herself, Charlotte goes to her, hugs her close, pats her back, and “shhhs” her.
These two play together, laugh together, walk hand-in-hand together, and are sweeter together than I could have ever imagined. I can’t wait to watch their relationship grow more as they get older!
