My sister in law just posted this picture on her blog.
I love it so much. It’s my Emma on the left with her cousin, Shae Shae. The name Shae is too short for a nickname, but everyone wants to say cutesy names when speaking to people they love, so somehow Shae has been lengthened to Shae Shae. I think Emma thinks Shae’s name really is Shae Shae. Shae Shae is four months older than Emma, and they’re in a stage where they love each other one minute and want to be as far away from each other as possible the next.
When I saw the above picture, it immediately made me think of this picture below.
That’s Shae Shae’s older sister, Cameron (who we call Poki because that’s how her older sister said her name when she was little) with my Lydia when they were probably about 3 years old. Poki is two months older than Lydia (who is called Liddie Bug by her cousins). They’re at a stage now where they love each other all the time.
Such pretty, happy girls.
