They were having such a great time together today. I'm knocking on wood literally as I write this, but they've actually been getting along soooo well lately. Really enjoying each other, engaging in awesome imaginative play, building things, playing games (yesterday, Aidric was teaching her chess!), encouraging each other, sticking up for each other..just overall complete BFFs. I have been LOVING it. (b/c let's be honest....they often fight, whine, tattle, yell, kick, scream, etc). So, I'm knocking on wood and praying that this continues b/c it's absolutely heavenly.
I took this picture this morning. It's "day 4" of my 365 days project. More about that later :) They had begged for my phone and then ran off the stairs so that Cormac wouldn't try to get in their way. He's a little obsessed with my phone. (and with doing whatever they are doing!) Aidric is playing a new math ap I just installed and Juliet is happy to be watching.
During Cormac's afternoon nap, these two generally have separate quiet times. They generally beg to play together for at least part of it, so I do often let them have some playtime first. It's usually ended when I can't stand the bickering and fighting anymore. Today, they played together during his entire two hour nap (while I worked - and didn't have to get up from my computer ONCE to referee). Once he was awake, they asked me to keep him out of their space b/c they didn't want him to mess up their castle. (made of foam blocks)
At one point during his nap, they were playing princess (yes, that's a daily activity here) and I snuck into the playroom with my camera. After I found them, they explained to me that this is where princesses go to stay dry when it is raining out. (it wasn't really raining, fyi)
I am so incredibly thankful for their friendship. I hope they know how special it is. Though they will inevitably go through the rough sibling years, I hope that they'll always be able to lean on each other, be loyal to each other and know that they have a lifelong friend in each other!
