I'm so glad our kids love each other!

Our kids are the very best of friends. They are 10.5 weeks apart in age. Kermit was adopted at birth and Miss Piggy was born shortly after that! They've helped each other so much through life. Because Miss Piggy was premature, she was behind in a few skills. However Kermit showed her how to do everything! Miss Piggy didn't stay behind for very long at all. All she wanted to do was what her big brother was doing. Like when they got their first tooth. Kermit got his 4 days before his 1st birthday. Miss Piggy got hers 12 HOURS later!

We quickly set them on the same schedule, they napped together, ate together, bathed together. It was the only way to survive! Some moments were really funny when they were babies. How about the time Grandma was grandma-sitting and she tried to feed them sweet potatoes... we're told she had sweet potatoes all over the place! Or when Mama would feed them both at the same time, sitting on the floor, nursing Miss Piggy while holding the bottle in Kermit's mouth.

They really help each other out. When Kermit was learning to walk he had a hippo push toy. It was fairly light and would move pretty fast, making it so Kermit would fall because it was too speedy for him. So Master Chief found a way to fix that... he propped Miss Piggy up in the middle of it to weigh it down (not that she weighed very much) and that was all Kermit needed to learn to walk and to take his little sister for a ride around the living room! Kermit is always willing to give Miss Piggy a piggy back ride, including the oinking sound effects! You can often find them taking turns pushing each other on the swings in the back yard. And if one gets something like a treat, they make sure to get one for their sibling.

They love each other so much and I can't imagine what they'd do without each other. We're amazed every day at how loving they are to each other. This afternoon they sat down to watch a movie and the picture above is how I found them... Aren't they cute!

That's a perfect word for you, Taffi!!! I always giggle at some of the verification words, thinking they are so true! How do "they" know us so well?
