I love them both separately...

but my heart just about bursts with love for them together. They are still working out the finer details of sharing and taking turns, but despite that, their love for each other is just so pure and so touching.

Tonight, Juliet denied me a goodnight kiss, but when I asked her if Aidric could give her one, she leaned her head in and turned her cheek to him. He put one hand on the back of her head and the other on one cheek when he went in for the kiss. As he kissed her three times, her little face just lit up and she started to giggle.

She has started attempting his name, but it comes out ah-dih.

He calls her "my sister" more and more. Usually when he's feeling protective. Like tonight, when I put him to bed.
Aidric:Mommy, will you come check on me?
Me: Of course, honey
Aidric: Will you check on my sister too?
Me: absolutely honey

I love that he's looking out for her. I pretty much just love them.
